What is it about?

ECSM is a European Union advocacy campaign supported since 2012 by the DG CONNECT and ENISA, the European Agency for Network and Information Security. Its purpose is to promote cyber security among citizens, to change their perception of cyber-threats and provide up to date security information, through education and good practices sharing.

Becoming an ECSM partner is about spreading the message “Cyber Security is a shared responsibility! STOP-THINK-CONNECT.” You are invited to organize, or participate in activities throughout Europe. The event could be large or small, online or offline, one or many: it is your choice!
