When you analyze the anatomy of most successful cyberattacks, nearly all of them have one thing in common – some user, somewhere, did something that could have been avoided. In fact, research shows that human error is involved in 90%+ of all security breaches. If your employees aren’t ready for a cyberattack, the unfortunate truth is that your organization isn’t either.
Mimecast Awareness Training is a security awareness training and cyber risk management platform that empowers you to combat information security breaches caused by employee mistakes, dramatically reducing risk. Developed by top leadership from the U.S. military, law enforcement and the intelligence community, the platform combines effective, modern training techniques with predictive analytics to help you solve for your company's vulnerability to human error.

Knowledge is power – and when it comes to your employees, increasing knowledge is one of the most effective ways to reduce your cybersecurity risk. The difference between our approach and others? We address serious topics in a seriously funny way to engage employees and change end-user behavior.
Effective doesn’t have to mean boring. In fact, best-practice tells us that boring does the opposite of driving results – it causes your employees to switch off. Learning science also tells us that learning must be both persistent and non-intrusive if lasting, meaningful behavioral change is the goal.
That’s why Mimecast decided to take a different approach. Employees don’t “like” our training videos – they love them. They print T-shirts based on our characters. And most importantly, they internalize critical concepts that help keep your organization safe.

Working with top CISOs and using insight from the Mimecast grid, we focus on the most relevant security awareness training topics for cyber risk management today. Our modules use fun to evade employees’ psychological defenses against security awareness training and we go beyond facts, showing people why they need to care.
From ransomware and phishing to unattended laptops and CEO fraud, the threats are many and they are real. There are plenty of bad actors ready to take advantage of your employees’ mistakes. And even when mistakes are not being engineered and leveraged by malicious outsiders, poor cyber habits can lead to difficult and costly situations for you and your team. Mimecast Awareness Training helps you mitigate cyber risk stemming from the simple mistakes your employees are making every day.
Mimecast Awareness Training has built a large and growing library of training modules focused on your top human-error related security risks, covering issues from social engineering to GDPR. Click here to see the breadth of Mimecast’s Awareness Training topics.

Most CISOs know the limits of typical phishing training and test solutions. They can be difficult to operate and next to impossible to customize for your company's needs. And, most critically, they are often disconnected from the rest of your security program. It's no wonder phishing training and testing solutions often don't work as well as they should.
We knew phishing training could be made better. So - we made it better. And, because Mimecast is an email security company, we are able to field some of the most realistic phishing simulations imaginable.
