Over 300 activities to promote safety online will be taking place throughout Europe during the European Cyber Security Month,  such as conferences, workshops, training sessions, summits, general presentations to users, online campaigns etc. The 2017 campaign will focus on cyber security in the workplace, governance, privacy and data protection, cyber security in the home and skills in cyber security.


At the launch event, which was hosted by the Tallinn University of Technology in Tallinn, on 29thSeptember 2017, representatives from the EU public sector, industry, national co-ordination teams, and academia gave insights into cybersecurity recommendations and tips. Leading cyber security specialists discussed topics related to the security themes running during each week of the Cyber Security Month. The event was co-organized with the Estonian Information System Authority, CERT Estonia and Tallinn University of Technology.


European Commission Vice-President for the Digital Single Market, Andrus Ansip, said: "Cybersecurity is a founding stone of the digital world; it is our shared responsibility, of everybody, every day. I welcome these joint efforts to promote awareness and concrete actions for cybersecurity across Europe.”


Commissioner for the Digital Economy and Society, Mariya Gabriel, said: “People in their professional and private life will only be able to anticipate or respond to digital risks adequately if they are sufficiently informed and possess the right skills. The European Cybersecurity Month is an excellent opportunity to complement our plans to make the EU more cyber safe.”


ENISA’s Executive Director, Prof. Udo Helmbrecht, said: “It is the 5th year that ENISA is partnering with the Commission and the Member States in carrying out the European Cyber Security Month. The European Cyber Security Month 2017 brings together experts across the European Union to support awareness raising of cybersecurity challenges for the everyday users. The event is an opportunity to remind everybody of the importance of cyber hygiene and that “cybersecurity is a shared responsibility. Stop. Think. Connect.”
