October is European Cyber Security Month

This article reflects the authors own views and not that of MLI.

October is European Cyber Security Month (ECSM). ECSM is coordinated by the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) and takes place each year during the month of October. The campaign is supported across Europe by Member States who organise numerous activities including conferences, workshops and webinars. They also disseminate appropriate awareness-raising material and good practices to promote cybersecurity and cyber hygiene. This year the ECSM themes will focus on Cyber Scams and Digital Skills which address the need for behavioural change and identifying opportunities to help users recognise the risks of new technologies. The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) in cooperation with An Garda Síochána will be running a cyber security awareness campaign during the month of October to include appropriate awareness raising material to convey the importance of cyber hygiene and establishing good practices online. The NCSC will also take part in a webinar on 5G Deployment and Security in Ireland hosted by Cyber Ireland on the 14th of October.
