Training experts is good, but training citizens it is way better! For many years now, the ECSM campaign grows so as to increasingly raise awareness among citizens for our collective welfare. As more and more partners are getting involved, the events are more diversified and tools are developed to reach as many people as possible. In consequence, digital security is more than never a society issue that gains in visibility.
ANSSI thanks partners involved in digital security and all Cybermoi/s participants.
Indeed, they were involved throughout October by relaying externally, but also internally within their teams or companies. They became themselves actors for #Cybermois.
Throughout October, 92 events took place in France, organized by actors involved in Cybermoi/s.
Afterwork, workshops, conferences, mornings, etc. all these events allowed a better understanding of digital security issues and gave participants the opportunity to take action to effectively secure their personal and professional digital lives.
The FIX cartoonist (@fixdessinateur) has once again lent his pen to create a gallery of drawings, Strip, videos, etc. giving life to the advice of experts. All these visuals made it possible to animate the month of October in a fun way
Many resources have been made available by ANSSI and its partners, such as illustrations, videos, communication kit, files, etc.
These resources will continue to be available year-round to raise awareness of digital security issues.
Congratulations to #TEAMFR who defended themselves well during #ECSC2019, which took place from October 8 to 12, 2019 in Bucharest.
See you next year in Austria for #ECSC2020! #TEAMFRANCE will be ready to take up the challenge.
Finally, Cybermoi/s was a success!
ANSSI hopes that this has been an opportunity for you to take care of your digital security and to acquire “good practices” to apply throughout the year.
Then, a study will be launched among the French, to collect feedback and opinions, in order to take them into consideration for the Cybermois of October 2020.
To prepare for the 2020 edition, the partners of European cybersecurity month are launching a research study in the coming weeks with an institute. The objective is to understand the knowledge and perception that citizens may have about cybersecurity issues.
What attitude can one have towards good practices? What motivation can one have to change one’s habits? What do we mean when we speak about “cyber security”, “information systems security” or “computer attack”? By exploring terminology and vocabulary in particular, this study will allow us to better shape our information and awareness-raising efforts in the future.
The results will be shared in 2020 !
