We now live in a world that is more connected than ever before. The Internet touches almost all aspects of everyone’s daily life, whether we realize it or not. Recognizing the importance of cybersecurity, the President of the United States, Barack Obama designated October as National Cyber Security Awareness Month. The Cyber Security Awareness Month is designed to engage and educate public and private sector partners through events and initiatives with the goal of raising awareness about cybersecurity and increasing the resiliency of the US, and to less extent the UK and Ireland in the event of a cyber incident.

In Europe it is slightly different: organized by the European Commission and ENISA (European Union Agency for Network and Information Security), they state that “The European Cyber Security Month (ECSM) is an EU advocacy campaign that promotes cyber security among citizens and advocates for change in the perception of cyber-threats, by promoting data and information security, education, sharing of good practices and competitions.”
