EU Security Association has been holding the European Security Month (ECSM) every October since 2012. This includes a wide variety of events and activities to provide information from the security community on all aspects of cybersecurity. Organisations and citizens should be informed about the risks of Internet use and awareness of the issue of security. This also makes everyday life safer for many companies. Our Executive Board member Oliver Hüttig provides information on what risks exist and how processes must be designed to ensure safety.
