Cyber first aid

#thinkB4UClick

ECSM 2021

This October is European Cybersecurity Month (ECSM) 2021, our annual campaign dedicated to promoting cybersecurity among citizens and organisations, and to providing up-to-date digital security information through awareness raising and the sharing of good practices.

Our motto this year is “Think Before U Click”.

Cyber attacks are becoming more sophisticated all the time and the Covid-19 pandemic has led to a surge in cyber criminal activity. This year, Cyber First Aid is one of the main themes of our campaign and we are sharing useful guidelines and advice on what to do in the case of a cyber attack.
