Cybersecurity in the home: ECSM Week 3

The third week of the 2017 European Cyber Security Month (ECSM) has kicked off. The theme of the week is ‘cybersecurity in the home’.

Published on October 17, 2017

Week 3 is aimed at raising awareness on threats posed by the Internet of Things (IoT), such as online fraud and scams, and will showcase how users can protect their home network and online privacy.

This week will also remind people that all IoT devices they use are fuelled by their sensitive, personal data. Although this technology brings countless benefits to users worldwide, it is critical to understand how to safely and securely make use of these innovations.

Find out more on the official website of ECSM and have a look at our video dedicated to week 3. If you would like to get involved, feel free to organise an event and add it to the activities map.

ECSM is designed to inform public and private sector partners about the importance of information security by highlighting the simple steps that can be taken to protect their data, whether personal, financial and/or professional.

The EU Cybersecurity Agency ENISA, the European Commission’s DG CONNECT and their partners are organising the ECSM every October.
