The National Cybersecurity Month Is Back
Denmark’s National Cybersecurity Month is part of the European Union’s annual campaign dedicated to promote cybersecurity to EU citizens and organisations. During October, the Agency for Digital Government, the Danish Business Authority, and the Centre for Cyber Security will promote initiatives and raise awareness to promote safe digital practices in Denmark.
What Is Happening during the National Cybersecurity Month?
During the National Cybersecurity Month, a range of activities and events will take place to advance the population’s skills when it comes to cyber threats and cybersecurity. Through two nationwide campaigns, people can learn about e.g. identity fraud and the safe use of social media for businesses. People will be able to test their skills in a cyberattack simulation and learn about the current cybersecurity threats that Denmark faces.
Moreover, the National Cybersecurity Council will host an event for schools, where 14-year-olds will receive advice on safe digital behavior. Furthermore, leading experts on the field will offer free lectures on different aspects on cybersecurity, and a free e-learning module on how to protect businesses from IT criminals will be offered.
All material will be hosted on Denmark’s online portal for cybersecurity and information security
