European Cyber Security Month (ECSM) is a European Union advocacy campaign supported by DG CONNECT i and ENISA, the European Agency for Network and Information Security. Its purpose is to promote cyber security among citizens, to change their perception of cyber-threats and provide up to date security information, through education and sharing good practices.

  • promote safer use of the Internet for all users;
  • build a strong track record to raise awareness through the ECSM;
  • involve relevant stakeholders;
  • increase national media interest through the European and global dimension of the project;
  • enhance attention and interest with regard to information security through political and media coordination.
