October 2012: European Cyber Security Month

The European Network and Information Agency (ENISA) that recently published a new study on cyber incident reporting in the EU, is organizing the first European Cyber Security Month (ECSM) in October to raise public awareness on cyber security. ECSM will feature a wide range of activities in six European countries (Luxembourg, Norway, Portugal, Slovenia, Spain, and UK) aiming to promote safer use of the Internet for all users. 
EU legislation can play an important role here as there is now a Directive, which has been transposed in national laws, obliging providers to report incidents to a national authority. Moreover, the European Commission is developing a European Cyber Security Strategy which aims to increase transparency about incidents, and ultimately to prevent them or limit their impact.
