    Cyber security training courses using humor, not fear

    Mimecast cyber security training courses are packaged in 3- to 5-minute modules that employees can digest once a month. Rather than a one-time security intensive, employees get a steady diet of short, engaging lessons that help to keep security top of mind.

    Each module focuses on a single aspect of cyber security. Topics include subjects like:

    • Phishing training, helping users recognize attacks and showing what happens when they're too careless in their responses.
    • Password security, helping to instill best practices for using strong passwords rather than personal passwords.
    • Ransomware, instructing employees on what attacks look like and how devastating a successful attack can be.
    • CEO/wire fraud, showing how these attacks work and what it feels like to be the person who succumbs to one.
    • Insider threat awareness training, helping users identify and stop potential threats from a fellow employee or a malicious actor posing as one.
    • Privacy training, with instructions on how best to protect personal information they may use within the course of a workday.
    • Compliance, helping employees understand and ensure compliance through PCI, HIPAA, and GDPR awareness training.
    • Office hygiene, with best practices for securing their desks, screens and paper.

    Risk scoring based on cyber security awareness

    One of the biggest advantages of Mimecast cyber security training courses is the ability to assign personalized cyber risk scores to every employee. These scores are based on data from training, surveys that gauge attitudes about cyber security, and anonymized data from multiple industries, clients and the Mimecast grid. Scores are adjusted by how likely an employee is to be targeted by attackers based on their job title and department.

    Mimecast risk scoring ultimately provides a watchlist that lets you know which employees and departments are avoiding or not benefiting from cyber security training courses, and which are exhibiting or are more likely to engage in risky behavior that can threaten cyber security. With this information, you can focus more time and resources on the employees and departments that represent your greatest risk, using one-on-one coaching and additional employee security awareness training to move the needle.
