    Employee Security Awareness Training FAQs

    Employee security awareness refers to an understanding by employees of the wide number of cyber threats that an organization may encounter, how employees can help to mitigate them and how a mistake can lead to a major security breach.
    Security awareness training is a program that educates employees about the best practices for handling cyber threats as well as the behaviors that can jeopardize personal and organizational security.
    Cyber security awareness training for employees helps to address one of the biggest factors in major security breaches: human error. By training employees how to recognize and respond to cyber threats, organizations can dramatically improve their security posture and cyber resilience.
    The number of hours of training to successfully educate employees in security awareness depends on the individual. Some employees will learn much more quickly than others. That's why Mimecast Awareness Training provides individualized risk scores for employees that lets you determine how effective training has been for each individual and to provide additional training or one-on-one coaching when necessary.
