"Think Before U Click!" #ThinkB4UClick

What is ECSM?

The European Cybersecurity Month is turning 10!  For the 10th consecutive year the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) is partnering with the Commission and Member States in carrying out #CyberSecMonth: the EU’s annual campaign dedicated to promoting cybersecurity among EU citizens and organisations and providing up-to-date online security information through awareness raising activities and sharing of good practices.

About ECSM

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.

Each year, for the entire month of October, hundreds of activities take place across Europe, including conferences, workshops, trainings, webinars, presentations and more, to promote digital security and cyber hygiene.

The EU Agency for Cybersecurity 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 for Member States’ audiences.

The two themes of the ECSM2022 campaign are:

  1. Phishing
  2. Ransomware

The corona virus pandemic is testing the online security resilience world-wide, while at the same time is pushing more and more citizens to conduct their daily lives and work online. Our lives have shifted into the digital dimension so educating the online user has become more important than ever before.

The main objectives of the 2022 campaign are to ensure that end-users and organisations are well informed on the potential cybersecurity risks and that they stay safe online. The general intention is to help EU citizens develop a basic understanding of the different types of online security and privacy issues.

‘Cybersecurity is a Shared Responsibility’

Since the first event in 2012, the European Cybersecurity Month has been reaching its key priorities by bringing together parties from across Europe under the slogan ‘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 and tools to do so.
