The Hartford Adds Cybersecurity Training to Cyber Offering for Businesses

The Hartford has partnered with Mimecast, an email and data security company, to offer Mimecast Awareness Training services designed to help customers reduce the risk of a cybersecurity incident before it occurs.

According to Tim Marlin, head of cyber underwriting at The Hartford, employees are increasingly 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," he said.

The Mimecast Awareness Training helps 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 and is available at a 20 percent discount to any other policyholder of The Hartford.

The Hartford's Cyber Center, a digital cyber risk management portal that provides customers with tools, training materials, and best practices suggestions to further help mitigate the risk of a cyber incident, includes additional information about the Mimecast Awareness training.

The Hartford provides property and casualty insurance, group benefits and mutual funds.
