EU Cyber Security Month: Commission organises a “Get Away Day” focused on cybersecurity practices

Cybersecurity in practice will be the focus of tomorrow’s “Get Away Day” organised by CONNECT University, the training programme of the European Commission’s Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology. The event is a part of the ongoing European Cyber Security Month, aimed at raising awareness in Europe about cybersecurity threats as well as promoting cybersecurity through education and sharing of good practices. The Get Away Day will feature presentations of EU-funded cybersecurity projects and training programmes and will offer tips and tricks on how citizens and businesses can improve their own cybersecurity. Interactive talks will allow participants to discuss their cybersecurity practices, share cyber threat intelligence and learn about emerging technologies and cybersecurity capabilities. The Centre for Cybersecurity Belgium, a partner of the European Cyber Security Month campaign, will also be present with its ‘cybersecurity truck’ to test EU staff’s cyber knowledge with fun games. A total of 120 participants are expected, among them many students and young people, as well as the winning team of the ‘European Cyber Security Challenge Competition‘ 2019 from Romania.
