The State of Email Security Report
Actionable steps to improve your organization’s email security and cyber resilience.
Make security awareness training for employees more engaging with Mimecast's video-based training modules, risk scoring, and phish testing solutions.
For CISOs, it's a troubling statistic: more than 90% of security breaches involve some level of human error. That means that even with the best security defenses in place, an employee's mistake can still result in a security breach that can bring an organization to its knees.
That's why security awareness training for employees is so critical, and why so many organizations have collectively poured billions of dollars into training programs. But despite this focused effort on educating employees about security threats, organizations today are even more likely to get hacked then they were just a few years ago.
At Mimecast, we think we know why: most security awareness training for employees is deadly dull. The subject of security best practices isn't terrifically interesting to start with, and if information security awareness training sessions are equally boring, employees won't engage and they won't learn.
That's why we've created something different: security awareness training for employees that uses humor and entertainment to keep employees engaged and drive home critical security lessons.
Mimecast Awareness Training takes a completely different approach from other training products.
Mimecast cybersecurity awareness training features four components that together provide a comprehensive approach to security awareness training for employees.
We know that Mimecast security awareness training for employees is highly engaging – employees tell us constantly how much they love our content. But what's most important is that our approach to training gets results. The table below shows how organizations on average can realize up to 4x improvement in awareness on a wide variety of security topics.
