The European Cyber Security Month is the EU's annual cybersecurity awareness campaign that takes place each October across Europe.

The aim of the ECSM campaign is to raise awareness about cyber security threats and promote cyber security among citizens and organisations through education and sharing of good practices. The European Commission's DG CONNECT together with the European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) and with more than 300 partners around Europe are deploying the European Cyber Security Month.
