Cyber Security Month to Raise AwarenessESET is once again helping to raise awareness about cyber threats during the annualEuropean Cyber Security Month (ECSM). In a world where a great part of the 500 million European citizens is working or spending their free time online, the significance of these risks should not be downplayed.

ESET experts will contribute with cyber security topics during October across several forums around Europe, such as ESET Security Days in Amsterdam, a dedicated webinar by ESET UK‘s Mark James during the Security Serious Week in the UK, presentations at Virus Bulletin conference in Prague, and last but not least IP Expo London, and IT-Security Expo in Germany.

As the general public is not taking part in most of these events, ESET will also reach out to them through articles focused on a variety of topics, including:

  • Tips and tricks for improved security for employees .
  • How employers can keep proprietary data and themselves safe.
  • Advice for software and app developers on how to apply “secure by design” approach.
  • Most popular cloud services, their advantages but also limitations.

ESET, the global pioneer in IT security for more than two decades, is pursuing its vision to enable users everywhere to enjoy the full potential of themselves and their technology in a secure digital world. Joining up with the ECSM initiative, it seeks to get closer to fulfilling this vision.

“Raising IT-Security awareness in our communities has been an important task that we have been working hard for many years at ESET. Therefore we are happy to join this action in order to improve our efforts to make a connected society more secure,” says Raphael Labaca Castro, Editor-in-Chief of ESET news-site, who attended the launch event in Brussels earlier this week.

European Cyber Security Month is an EU-wide campaign that promotes cyber security among citizens and advocates for change in the perception of cyber-threats by promoting data and information security, education, sharing of good practices and competitions.
