European Cybersecurity Month (ECSM) 2021 is getting closer!

The European Cyber Security Month (ECSM) is the EU’s annual cybersecurity awareness campaign that takes place each October across Europe. The aim is to raise awareness of cybersecurity threats and promote cyber hygiene among citizens and organisations through education and sharing of good practices.
