Hartford has partnered with Mimecast, an email and data security
company, to offer Mimecast™ Awareness Training services to help its
customers reduce the risk of a cybersecurity incident before it occurs.
“Cyberattacks continue to evolve and are becoming more sophisticated,”
said Tim Marlin, head of cyber underwriting at The Hartford.
“Increasingly, employees are targets of complex phishing and social
engineering attempts and may inadvertently cause damage by responding to
an email that looked real to them. Staying on top of these trends and
providing employees with the knowledge to identify these types of
threats can go a long way in protecting a business from ransomware, a
cyber crime or a data breach.”
The Mimecast Awareness Training incorporates some humor into the content
to help employers educate their employees about serious topics such as
ransomware, phishing, wire fraud, password hygiene and more. The
training includes video content as well as real-world phishing
simulations and remediation for employees.
The training is available at no charge to select customers who have The
Hartford’s CyberChoice First Response Policy SM and is

“While having technology-based cybersecurity solutions in place is
critical, organizations must also educate their last line of defense –
their employees,” said Michael Madon, senior vice president of security
awareness products at Mimecast. “We are proud to partner with The
Hartford to help their customers manage their business risk and extend
our mission of helping customers become more cyber resilient.”
