About the European Cybersecurity Month
The European Cybersecurity Month (ECSM) is the EU’s annual campaign dedicated to promoting cybersecurity among citizens and organisations, and to providing up-to-date online security information through awareness raising and sharing of good practices. Each year, for the entire month of October, hundreds of activities take place across Europe, including conferences, workshops, trainings, webinars, presentations and more, to promote digital security and cyber hygiene.
At TU Darmstadt, the Profile Area Cybersecurity (CYSEC) and the startup incubator StartUp Secure | ATHENE organized various contents for the ECSM 2020.
