Launch of European Cyber Security Month logo

Launch of European Cyber Security Month logo

Published on July 03, 2012

The Agency is launching the European Cyber Security Month (ECMS) logo, unveiling the project's visual identity  to improve the visibility and recognition, which will make the ECSM easier to promote.

This logo introduces a human factor, which is a key element  for successful cyber security. The European Security Month is also a sort of celebration: an event, a meeting of people gathered into a network.

Elements of the logo;

  • The shape is a synthetic representation of a person in profile - the user.
  • This user is at the heart of the web, represented by the crisscrossing lines in the background.
  • The circular shape around the head of the user suggest protection.
  • The logo as a whole (typography included) can also be viewed as a key, further suggesting security.
  • The four lines of the text being the grooves (tooth) of the key, while the negative head shape is the bow of the key.


  • The colours recall the European Union flag colours.


The logo will soon be available in all 23 official EU languages, and appear on all branding material that will be created for the European Cyber Security Month ECSM.


Background and further ECSM material for involved stakeholders and Member States awareness raising organisation and bodies.
