October is cybersecurity month, the European initiative coordinated by ENISA and by the European Commission to raise cyber security awareness in Europe, and GÉANT is ready to launch this year’s cybersecurity month campaign: CSM22 – A Community of Cyber Heroes.
The main objective of CSM22 is to increase knowledge and awareness of cybersecurity in the broad international Research & Education community by providing its members and users with targeted and tailor-made content and useful tools in the fight against cyber crime.
Collaboration and information sharing are at the heart of the R&E community. Only by working together its members can make a difference and improve the cyber resilience of the entire community.
CSM22 – A community of Cyber heroes will focus on 4 main target groups during each week of October:
- Week 1 (starting on 3 October) – Decision Makers
- Week 2 (starting on 10 October) – Cybersecurity Professionals
- Week 3 (starting on 17 October) – Staff working at home
- Week 4 (starting on 24 October) – Students and researchers
Webinar Programme, in collaboration with RedCLARA
The CSM22 campaign also includes a programme of four webinars that will be held by security experts from industry and the wider GÉANT community, and there’s something new this year. GÉANT welcomes the collaboration with RedCLARA, the Latin American space for collaboration and development in education, science and innovation which gives CSM22 a truly global dimension.
Rosanna Norman, Communications Officer from GÉANT comments: ‘We’re excited to work with our friends and colleagues from RedCLARA: security affects users globally, security is everybody’s concern and cross-border collaboration is needed more than ever in the fight against international cybercrime”.
The collaboration between the two international organisations comprises contributions from Latin American NRENs, the participation as a speaker by Emilio Nakamura CISO from RNP, the Brazilian NREN and the availability of live interpretation services in three languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese).
