With the slogan “Stop. Think. Connect. Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility”, more than 400 activities will take place during ‘European Cybersecurity Month’ across Europe. Activities like conferences, workshops, training sessions, presentations, webinars, Internet campaigns and much more are all designed to protect users from Internet scammers.

In this new scenario, cybersecurity training is essential to protect the private data of both individuals and professionals.
