European Cyber Security Month ECSM 2017 deployment report

ENISA is today pleased to publish the ‘European Cyber Security Month deployment report’, a summary of the activities carried out throughout ECSM 2017 by the Agency and participating Member States.

Published on February 06, 2018

The European Cyber Security Month deployment report presents the evaluation and conclusions of ECSM 2017 and seeks to trigger further discussions amongst Member States on how the campaign can be improved going forward.

The report targets both organisations that supported ECSM and those seeking to get involved in the future. At the same time, it also targets ICT and non ICT security professionals who wish to launch similar awareness raising campaigns.

Furthermore, the report targets EU and national policy makers who aim to improve the security awareness of citizens, professionals and generally IT end-users.

2017 was the fifth consecutive year of the campaign which is coordinated by the EU Cybersecurity Agency ENISA and supported by the European Commission’s DG CONNECT and their partners, in collaboration with Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre EC3.

The campaign seeks to raise awareness of cybersecurity practices. During the month of October 2017, some 530 activities centred on weekly themes took place across Europe. Activities included publishing reports and organising conferences, workshops, seminars, online courses, trainings, strategy summits, general presentations to users, online quizzes, etc.

In 2017, ECSM put an emphasis on the following four themes:

Week 1: Cybersecurity in the workplace – cyber-hygiene practices for SMEs

Week 2: Governance, Privacy & Data Protection – preparation for EU’s General Data Protection Regulation

Week 3: Cybersecurity in the home – threats related to Internet of Things

Week 4: Skills in cybersecurity – educating and growing the cybersecurity workforce
