European Cyber Security Month (ECSM) is a European Union advocacy campaign that takes place in October. ECSM aims to promote cyber security among citizens, to change their perception of cyber-threats and provide up to date security information, through education and sharing good practices.

For this October the community pinpointed on the agenda the following weekly NIS topics:

  • 1st week: Cyber security exercises, targeting technical expertise;
  • 2nd week: PC and mobile security protection and updates, targeting all digital users;
  • 3rd week: Coding, targeting students; 
  • 4th week: Training employees, targeting public and private organizations;
