European Cyber Security Month: Overview

October is European Cyber Security Month. An annual event held every October, the aim is to promote cybersecurity to a wider audience, increase awareness of threats and to provide educational and resources to help everyone improve their cybersecurity. Here we share our quick overview of what’s going on and how to get involved!

  • There are more than 370 events across 34 countries taking place as part of ECSM 2020.
  • The ongoing theme of the month is ‘ Cybersecurity is a Shared Responsibility’ to unite against cyber threats. Each year, the campaign not only promotes the safer use of the Internet for EU citizens, but the organisers provide the knowledge for users to take away and implement.
  • Think Before U Click’ 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.  You can join the campaign on Twitter and Facebook@CyberSecMonth, #CyberSecMonth, #ThinkB4UClick
  • You can get involved with events here and learn how to stay secure online, whilst free digital resources can be accessed here
