European Cyber Security Month Hungary

European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA) organizes a European Cyber Security Month campaign (ECSM) every October since 2012. The aim of the ECSM campaign is to generate general awareness about cyber security and to raise awareness about the main cybersecurity threats for a large audience.
During the Cyber Security Month campaign there are trainings, awareness raising lectures and events held by the institutes of the EU Member States. The coordination of the Campaign is made by ENISA.

The main topics for this year's campaign:
  • Practice Basic Cyber Hygiene: the theme seeks to assist the public in establishing and maintaining daily routines, checks and general behaviour required to stay safe online.
  • Expand your Digital Skills and Education: transform your skills and security know how with the latest technologies.
  • Recognize Cyber Scams: the theme aims to educate the general public on how to identify deceiving content in order to keep both themselves and their finances safe online.
  • Emerging Technologies and Privacy: stay tech wise and safe with the latest emerging technologies.
In 2018 Hungary joins to the campaign with several events. The National Cyber Security Center (NCSC) is the contact point in EU level for the ECSM and responsible for the coordination of the national elements of the campaign. The aim of the NCSC is to reach a wider audience by the involvement of the governmental and non-governmental companies, universities, schools and other organizations that deals with cybersecurity issues. This campaign is a unique opportunity to create more active public-private partnerships.
