ECSM: Call to action

The European Cybersecurity Month (ECSM) is the European Union’s annual campaign dedicated to promoting cybersecurity among EU citizens and organisations, and to providing up-to-date online security information through awareness-raising and sharing of good practices. 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.

ECSM 2020 campaign motto is: 'Think before U click!' and the overall motto of this initiative is 'Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility!' This year the campaign will evolve around two main themes: 'Digital skills' and 'Cyber-scams' in the era of pandemic and lock-downs.
