Cyber Security Month

Making sure everyone in the community is aware of the latest developments in security and the newest risks is an important aspect of ensuring security. GÉANT is committed to disseminating security news and advisories across all its channels. By doing this it aims to provide insights into the different possible ways to deal with cybersecurity awareness while pointing out where to get support and what is most crucial in the fight against cybercrime.

Since 2019 GÉANT has taken part in Cyber Security Month, an initiative coordinated by ENISA and the European Commission to raise cyber security awareness in Europe. The campaigns aimed to encourage end-users to arm themselves against digital threats and feel empowered to protect their organisation (and themselves) with articles, interviews, recommendations and webinars, presented by security experts from the R&E community and industry.

GÉANT CSM2022 - A Community of Cyber Heroes Our CSM22 campaign, 'A Community of Cyber Heroes', focuses on 4 main target groups during each week of October: Decision Makers (Week 1), Cybersecurity Professionals (Week 2), Staff working at home (Week 3), and Students and researchers (Week 4). The CSM22 campaign also includes a programme of four webinars held by security experts from industry and the wider GÉANT community. Thanks to the collaboration with RedCLARA, live interpretation services in three languages (English, Spanish and Portuguese) are also available. Keep watching this page and our Twitter account @GEANTnews for all updates and follow the hashtags #CyberSecMonth and #AllCyberHeroes.

CSM2021 - Cyber Hero At Home

The GÉANT Cyber Security Month 2021 campaign focused on the importance of digitally safe home-working and its central theme, 'Cyber ​​Hero @ Home', was divided in 4 weekly sub-themes throughout the month: "Be aware of cybercrime", "Protect your network", "Protect your devices" and "Protect your identity". The programme also included a series of webinars, one per weekly theme, presented by security experts from R&E and industry. All resources - including social media banners, vector files, animations and translations in 18 languages - are available for download via our awareness package.

CSM2020 - Become A Cyber Hero

"Become A Cyber Hero", the first pan-European campaign organised by the GÉANT community, ran throughout the month of October 2020. Each week, we shared practical tips, case studies and articles on a different cyber security topic, four in total: social engineering, phishing, password security and ransomware.

The objective of the campaign was to encourage end-users to arm themselves against digital threats and feel empowered to protect (themselves and) their organisation.
