If you mean a sysmsgr.exe from OfficeCyberAlert, then it's legit.

But if you mean the display name like below pointing to sysmsgr.exe? then it's a bad file.
[System Messenger Service] sysmsgr.exe

Rightclick on the file and look at the properties and see if it has a company name.
Where is the file located?

Instead of sysmsgr.exe did you perhaps mean sysmgr.exe ?
Assuming for the moment you did, here's information on sysmgr.exe :
http://www.file.net/process/sysmgr.exe.html

As stated, some Malware camouflage themselves as sysmgr.exe.   You could check to see if your file is located in c:\windows or the c:\windows\system32 folder.

Whichever file you meant, and just to be sure, have you tried scanning for Malware with Malwarebytes?
If no, try downloading & updating Malwarebytes anti-Malware, from here:
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
Run in normal mode.

Some additional information, found so far ...
sysmsgr.exe:
http://www.pc1news.com/virus/file-sysmsgr-exe-381437.html

Another option is to download & run Process Explorer v12.04 to see if running OfficeCyberAlert (and sysmsgr.exe) is causing high CPU usage.  It may well be:
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-gb/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx

Then select "view" > System Information
System Idle Process should be ~95 to 99%

If you're not familiar with Process Explorer you'll find useful instructions, with appropriate graphics, here:

If you uninstall OfficeCyberAlert and your computer is still slow, run Malwarebytes anyway.
