The State of Email Security Report
Actionable steps to improve your organization’s email security and cyber resilience.
Build stronger defenses with Mimecast's information security awareness training.
Nearly all successful cyberattacks have one thing in common: an employee took an action that allowed the attack to take place. In fact, studies show human error is a factor in more than 90% of security breaches. Clearly employees need greater security awareness to protect themselves and their organization from a constantly evolving threat landscape.
One would think that information security awareness training could help to improve the situation. But after committing billions of dollars to training programs in recent years, organizations today are even more likely to experience a breach than they were four years ago.
Why is it so hard to improve security awareness? At Mimecast, we believe the issue is in the traditional approach to training. IT security awareness is not exactly a captivating subject for most people, and traditional training programs only make matters worse by being incredibly boring. How can anyone expect employees to learn or master security best practices when they're having a hard time paying attention?
Mimecast solves this problem with a security awareness training program that is highly entertaining and structured to make security best practices simple to learn and easy to retain.
