2019 State of Email Security Report
Actionable steps to improve your organization’s email security and cyber resilience.
Have we mentioned that our cybersecurity awareness training videos are funny? Well, they are, and that’s not an accident. Humor captures attention. It is the best way to engage. And we leverage that to bring basic security training concepts home.
Employees don’t “like” our training – they love it. They print T-shirts based on our characters (take a moment to meet Human Error and Sound Judgment). Who said cybersecurity humor couldn’t be a thing?
Mimecast Awareness Training uses recurring characters and themes to communicate important information in a highly relatable way. Employees don’t just like these characters – they love them and look forward to seeing them again and again. The result? They learn without even knowing it.
It’s all about this guy. To deal with him, you need to understand the root causes of human error as it relates to cybersecurity awareness.
Let’s be realistic – your employees are busy. If training is overly time-consuming, employees resent it and avoid it. That’s why Mimecast follows a best-practice, micro-learning approach. Each cyber security training module takes no longer than three to five minutes to complete; and the amazing thing is that employees don’t dread Mimecast’s cybersecurity awareness training – they look forward to it. They get a fun break in their day; you get a more resilient organization.
“Our firm‘s Corporate Security Department has found the Mimecast training platform to be a very effective tool for developing, reinforcing and preserving security awareness. It’s unique method of presentation—being humorous and topical, while also poignant—is very effective. For the first time, we have staff looking forward to their security awareness training.

Let’s talk persistence. Security awareness training can’t be a one and done if it’s going to work—both research and practical experience bear that out. Memories fade, the threat landscape changes, and employees lose that shared sense of responsibility for keeping the organization safe.
Mimecast’s security awareness training continually communicates and reinforces key concepts by delivering training to every employee once a month. And those who need more help—based on test results and risk scoring—can receive targeted training as often as necessary.
All of our online security training modules are available in several leading languages, via translation or captioning, to support your worldwide operations. And because each module is delivered online, you can easily deploy Mimecast Awareness Training to a global workforce with just a few clicks.
Micro-learning at its best. Get a small taste...
Think of him as your teenage self, deciding to skateboard down some concrete steps while recording it for posterity. What could possibly go wrong?
Human Error represents that voice over our shoulders urging us to do the easy or tempting thing, despite our better instincts. He’s the driving force behind the costly (but almost always innocent) mistakes end-users make.
Mimecast’s training brings Human Error to life, allowing us all to laugh at ourselves while learning in the process.
She’s the friend your parents wanted you to have and the person who makes you say on a regular basis...”I wish I’d thought of that!”
Sound Judgment represents the critical thinking we want all employees to develop when it comes to identifying and avoiding cyber threats that, let’s face it, can be pretty hard to detect.
Her character serves as a positive role model that end-users can relate to and strive to emulate.
