ENISA ED at Austrian ECSM media briefing

ENISA Executive Director, Professor Udo Helmbrecht, took part on 11th of July in a special media briefing on the forthcoming European Cyber Security Month (ECSM). The event was organised in Vienna by Digital Austria - the coordination and strategy committee of the Federal Government for eGovernment in Austria. The briefings also covered security in Cloud computing.

ECSM events will be taking place in countries across Europe in October, with the aim of increasing people's awareness of how to stay safe online. Security in Cloud computing is a key point, with these services providing new opportunities for users and service providers.

Commenting after the media briefing, Professor Helmbrecht said: "We are very pleased that Austria is, for the first time, taking part in the European Cyber Security Month (ECSM). Their participation at federal level has brought together many institutions, and we are looking forward to a great programme of ECSM events in Austria.

ECSM is an important part of how ENISA is helping to develop a culture of network and information security, and the Agency's expertise in these areas is underlined in the European Union's Cybersecurity Strategy and the Network and Information Security Directive."
