October is European Cybersecurity Month (ECSM). The 2020 campaign focuses on different themes addressing the need for behavioural change and identifying opportunities to help users recognise the risks of new technologies.
Each year, for the entire month of October, hundreds of activities take place across Europe, including conferences, workshops, training sessions, webinars, presentations and more, to promote digital security and cyber hygiene.
‘Think Before U Click’ (#ThinkB4Uclick) is the official motto of ECSM 2020. This October, the programme focuses on two themes to help people identify and be prepared for cyber threats.
The first theme, ‘Digital Skills’, provides participants with information on e-privacy matters such as personal data protection, cyber bullying and cyber stalking.
The second theme, ‘Cyber Scams’, shares insights into current and potential cyber threats such as phishing, business email compromise and online shopping fraud.
The ECSM campaign is coordinated by the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) and the European Commission, and supported by EU Member States and hundreds of partners (governments, universities, think tanks, NGOs, professional associations, private sector business) from Europe, and beyond.
ENISA coordinates the organisation of the ECSM campaign by acting as a “hub” for all participating Member States and EU Institutions, and by providing expert suggestions, generating synergies and promoting common messaging among EU citizens, businesses and public administration. The Agency also publishes new materials and provides expert advice on different cybersecurity topics.
