Why Do You Need a Cyber Security Video?

We live in an information-saturated world.

And as a result, cybersecurity has never been more critical and vital.

Like one’s own health, you don’t realize how important it is until something goes wrong.

Ironically, a consequence of all this instant access to so much information is a high signal-to-noise ratio, so to speak.

There’s simply too much of it. The problem isn’t getting your message out there, it’s being heard and understood amidst the endless noise.

Your message is a drop in the ocean.

And if you cannot make that critical connection with your audience, all is lost.

All your marketing and advertising is money going down the drain.

This is why you need something to break through the noise and be heard and remembered.

With the power of cyber security training videos, you can do that and a lot more. Let’s learn how in the next section!

How Can Animated Cyber Security Videos Help?

We are truly visual creatures.

Sight and sound are our primary senses for perceiving the world around us.

This is why video is so powerful and effective at grabbing attention and delivering a memorable message, especially when combined with the magic of storytelling.

In much the same way that the internet revolutionized the world with instant information access from anywhere, video is transforming the way we communicate.

With increasing data speeds and proliferation, it’s only natural for people to shift from text to images to video, in everything from social media to business.

The true power of animated video comes in its unique ability to grab and hold the viewer’s attention better than images, sound, or text.

And, hold their attention while delivering an engaging message that stays fresh in their memory for a long time afterward, even after just one viewing.

It’s especially effective in explaining complex topics in-depth, going into detail without losing the viewer’s interest or attention, in a way that no other format that currently exists can accomplish.

And what topic is more critically important and in need of explaining, than cybersecurity today?

Best Cyber Security Videos to Watch in 2024

Still not convinced about what animated storytelling can do for the cybersecurity industry?

Then don’t take our word for it.

Check out this selection of our favorite animated videos on cybersecurity from the best of the best and see for yourself!

1. Kaspersky Threat Management & Defense

 

It’s hard to communicate aspects of cybersecurity since it involves things you cannot see and touch, like data, viruses, software and so on.

People have a clear image in their minds when they hear about, say, a burglary or theft, where someone breaks in and steals physical objects.

But talk about hacking, firewalls, etc. and most people’s minds go blank.

Especially key decision-makers who are not always computer-savvy.

This is where animation really excels because it can depict the real world, but it can also conjure up more abstract and creative imagery that can better describe and explain things that are not physical.

Like this video for Kaspersky, for example.

With a creative license and a sharp script, it brings to life the reality of cybersecurity and its importance to any business of any size.

2. AT&T Threat Manager

 

This animated cyber security explainer video for AT&T takes a similar approach.

It brings to stark reality the nature of the risks that you work so hard to protect against.

The high-tech visual style subtly underscores the technical complexity of the work you do and presents AT&T’s Threat Manager as the heroic savior that every company needs to stay safe from cyber threats.

3. CrowdStrike: Breaches Stop Here

 

It’s tricky enough explaining cybersecurity to your audience when it comes to securing their computers and data.

And it’s an order of magnitude explaining cybersecurity in the cloud.

You could have the safest system in-house, but all that changes once your data goes into the cloud where it’s pretty much out of your hands.

Fortunately, CrowdStrike created an innovative solution to address this exact set of problems.

But how to explain something this technology to the general public?

They opted to use an animated explainer video on cybersecurity to talk about the risks and what they do to mitigate them and keep their customers’s data safe, whether it’s local or up in the cloud.

4. StackPath

 

The information age is all about out-of-the-box, disruptive innovation.

And Stackpath’s approach to cybersecurity in this video made by Epipheo is no different.

Rather than “bolting on” more and more protocols and systems to secure data, their idea was to build it right with clever solutions that communicate with each other and work together.

Cool idea, but how do you explain all this in a way that holds the audience’s attention?

If you make it too simple, the explanation falls flat and nothing of substance is communicated.

If you go too in-depth, it can bore and overwhelm even the viewers who are familiar with information security.

Epipheo created this clever video that explains cybersecurity thoroughly enough without losing the audience’s interest or overwhelming them with too much information, using a blend of a well-written script and interesting visuals to tell their story.

5. CrowdStrike Falcon Complete

 

The internet never sleeps, and the risks never abate.

The solution isn’t to throw ever more resources at security, but to work smart, not just hard.

That was the idea behind CrowdStrike Falcon. It sounds deceptively simple, but it’s anything but.

However, to explain how this solution really works without losing the audience’s attention, CrowdStrike once again turned to animation to help tell their story– to great effect!

6. LSTXYZ


This animated infographic cybersecurity video by LSTXYZ is a classic example of animated videos done right.

This is a Director’s cut for a project about Cybersecurity that LSTXYZ was working on and it’s simply too impressive.

The excellent use of 2D and 3D animations simply draws you in and is an immersive spectacle to behold.

The deep voiceover and visual pacing work really well together and it does all of this without sacrificing core messaging and comprehension.

7. Panda Security


This animated cybersecurity video for Panda Security is in a league of its own.

They have demonstrated the perfect use of motion graphics and contrasting colors making for an immersive viewing experience.

The voiceover matches with the animation’s pacing perfectly and we wish we could get more of this.

For such videos, “stunning” would be an understatement.

8. Centre for Cybersecurity


Not all cybersecurity videos need to use raging colors to get the point forward.

This animated cybersecurity video for The Centre for Cybersecurity made by Timeline takes infographics animations to the next level with stunning text animations and motion graphics.

The highlight of this video is its primary use of black and white color and contrasting colors that make the storytelling aspect of the video next to perfect.

The video does a great job of engaging the viewers from the start so they watch the video till the end (and seeing this video ourselves, we can’t really blame them).

9. Northwave Security


Out of the many 3D animation videos we have seen and created for our clients, nothing stands out more that this animated cybersecurity video for Northwave Security made by the good folks at Mitsi.

The video is entirely made with fluid 3D animations and photorealistic colors and textures, reminiscent of modern video games.

But here’s the interesting part–the video has still managed to keep its core message intact.

The way the video presents its offering simply and uses the 3D animations to bring the point home is, in our opinion, the best use of animation we have ever seen.

10. Canada Centre for Global Security Studies

Not every cybersecurity video should have a serious vibe to it.

Sometimes having fun with your messaging can put the viewers at ease.

And that’s exactly what Martin Thoburn did for Duo Security by delivering their offering in the form of a cartoon.
