Within the project ‘ENISA: Research of Awareness Raising Activities‘ eGA cyber experts compiled a report on cybersecurity awareness that aims to assist the EU Member States in fostering their cybersecurity capacities on citizens.
An overview and an analysis of EU Member States’ national awareness activities and plans, is thoroughly presented. The report deep-dives into the methodologies and approaches followed by Member States that includes inter alias planning, awareness raising activities, performance indicators and impact made. For that effort, twenty structured interviews were conducted with the relevant national authorities, during the reference period from May to July 2021.
The report presents ways in which the Member States have achieved better cybersecurity awareness in society and have incorporated cybersecurity awareness into their national cybersecurity strategies (NCSS).
In addition, the report provides recommendations in the following four areas: building capacities for cybersecurity awareness, regular assessments of trends and challenges, measuring cybersecurity behaviour and planning cybersecurity awareness campaigns.
The report is an excellent guide for the experts from National Authorities responsible for the designing and the implementation of cybersecurity awareness raising campaigns, as well as responsible for National Cybersecurity Strategies; European Institutions interested in cybersecurity awareness and skills; business and the industry sector and researchers and the academic community.
The report is compiled by Merle Maigre, Radu Serano, Mari Tomingas, and Alena Labanava.
