OCTOBER IS THE EUROPEAN CYBER SECURITY MONTH
ECSM (European Cyber Security Month) is an initiative coordinated by Enisa (European Union Agency for Information Security) and the European Commission, with the aim of promoting Cyber Security through events and initiatives to raise awareness.
The campaign takes place every year in October and is supported by EU Member States and hundreds of European partners.
Since its first edition in 2012, the European Cyber Security Month has promoted its activities by adopting the slogan “Information Security is a shared responsibility”.
The EU Cyber Security Agency coordinates the organization of the ECSM campaign each year by acting as a “hub” for all Member States, EU institutions and participating organizations.
The 2021 edition is strongly influenced by the Covid-19 pandemic, which although it helped to spread the use of digital, on the other hand had put system security to a severe test.
The main objective is always to ensure that EU end users and organizations receive correct information about Cyber Security in order to understand risks and main threats.
#ThinkB4UClick (think before clicking) is therefore the main theme of this year’s campaign, in its 2 forms:
- First aid, guidelines on what to do if you fall victim to a cyber attack
- Be cyber-safe at home
Even this year the European Cyber Security Month will be supported in Italy by Clusit (Italian Association for Cyber Security) together with various organizations, universities and research centers.
You can find the list of initiatives promoted by the association for the ECSM2021 campaign in CLUSIT website.
As a member of the Clusit Scientific Committee, our CEO Sofia Scozzari is one of the Italian Partners for the ECSM2021 and she will participate with a series of events and initiatives.
