    Protect your organization with superior email security training

    Email continues to be one of the top vectors for cyberattacks. From phishing emails and ransomware to impersonation and CEO fraud, many of the most devastating security breaches originate with an email. Human error is central to the success of these attacks – it only takes one employee making one mistake to enable a security catastrophe.

    Email security training can significantly mitigate human error – but only when training courses are effective. Sadly, too many cyber security training courses are boring, time-consuming and poorly conceived, making it hard for employees to pay attention let alone learn the best practices they need to master.

    Mimecast offers a fresh alternative: email security training that uses humorous videos and short monthly trainings that keep employees engaged and entertained while they build IT security awareness without even knowing it.

    Humor to is the key to Mimecast email security training

    Studies that humor is a highly effective tool in education. Ask any educator – humor works with students of all ages, promoting greater learning results and long-term memory retention.

    To improve the effectiveness of cyber security awareness training, Mimecast programs are designed to get employees laughing. Each module centers on a short video written by real movie/TV comedy writers and acted and produced by industry pros. With recurring characters in mini sitcoms, our email security training videos cover serious topics in a lighthearted way to effectively drive home critical learning about best practices.

    Each training module lasts no more than five minutes. And rather than have employees plow through training in a few hours, Mimecast email security training happens once a month to avoid overloading employees and to enable content to address emerging security concerns.
