European Cyber Security Month

Within the framework of the European Cyber Security Month (ECSM), KIT provides information on the topic of IT security with a wide range of offers and materials.

This year, the focus at KIT will be on the detection of phishing mails and other fraudulent messages and the safe handling of these. The event is jointly organized by the research group "Security, Usability, Society" (SECUSO), the Steinbuch Centre for Computing (SCC) and the Information Security Officer (ISB).

The ECSM has been held annually since 2012 and is an action of the EU Member States under the auspices of ENISA to promote cyber security awareness. For more information on the ECSM:
