National Cybersecurity Strategies: with a vision on raising citizens’ awareness

The European Union Agency for Cybersecurity (ENISA) under the framework of its 9th National Cybersecurity Strategies (NCSS) workshop, issued a report on cybersecurity awareness, with the aim to assist EU Member States in fostering their cybersecurity capacities on citizens.


An ever-rising number of cyberattacks each year is a de facto, which in combination with the lack of appropriate guidelines and trainings highlights the urgent need for cybersecurity awareness. At the same time, communication about cybersecurity issues and awareness raising is not a straightforward endeavour. EU Member States need to take concrete actions towards this objective, which is more likely to be successful when the corresponding vision is incorporated in their national cybersecurity strategy.


In this context, ENISA organised today the 9th National Cybersecurity Strategies (NCSS) Workshop, an annual event dedicated on developments and good practices followed by EU Member States towards raising cybersecurity awareness.


The report “Raising awareness as a key element of National Cybersecurity Strategies” was the main deliverable, presented by ENISA experts during the workshop.
