2018 European Cyber Security Month kicks off

Creation date: October 1, 2018

The European Cyber Security Month (ECSM) is the European Union’s annual awareness raising campaign dedicated to promoting cybersecurity among citizens and organizations, providing up-to-date security information through education and sharing of best practices.

The 2018 European Cyber Security Month focuses on four themes, each one corresponding to a week in October:

  • Week 1 – 1 October to 7 October: “Practice basic cyber hygiene”;
  • Week 2 – 8 October to 14 October: “Expand your digital skills and education”;
  • Week 3 – 15 October to 21 October: “Recognize Cyber Scams”;
  • Week 4 – 22 October to 28 October: “Emerging technologies and privacy”.

This campaign is run during the month of October by the EU Cybersecurity Agency ENISA, the European Commission and over 200 partners from all over Europe.


Cybersecurity is one of the Digital Single Infrastructures (DSI) supported by CEF Telecom. Here you can find more information about the DSI and here about the CEF Telecom projects on Cybersecurity.
