European Cyber Security Month

October is European Cyber Security Month and this year will bring plenty of opportunities for people to discover how to stay safe online and play an active role in their own security.

Throughout European Cyber Security Month, which is organised by the European Union Agency for Network and Information Security (ENISA), over 300 activities, including events, training sessions, tips and an online quiz, will take place across 27 countries.

This year’s Cyber Security Month will focus on security in banking, cyber safety, cyber training and mobile malware.

The Cyber Security Month is a key part of the EU’s Cybersecurity Strategy to increase people’s awareness of the key role they can play in ensuring the security of networks and information systems.

The UK has a number of events planned, with the nearest to us in the South East being Basingstoke and their Digital Tech Week.

From their website:

From Monday 10 to Sunday 16 October we’ll be putting Basingstoke on the digital-tech map by hosting a series of events that are designed to bring the local business community together and nurture future talent and innovation.

Our programme is packed full of useful and interesting events aimed at local businesses, start-ups and those with an interest in digital tech. It culminates with our hack weekend bringing together passionate innovators, digital-makers and creative thinkers to collaborate and solve business challenges.
