GFCE Cyber Security Awareness Campaign, 26 May 2020

To raise public awareness of cyber security, the GFCE organised a virtual roundtable on 26 May 2020 with representatives of various governmental and non-governmental cyber security awareness campaigns. Peter Cassidy from the Anti-Phishing Working Group (APWG) informed about the project “STOP. THINK. CONNECT.” (STC) project, which aims to draw attention to the threat of growing cybercrime. Zoriana Dmytryshyna spoke about the activities of ENISA, Europol and the European Commission. Gabriela Montes de Oca from the Organization of American States (OAS) reported on the OAS “Cybersecurity Awareness Campaign Toolkit” and a “Media Literacy Guide”. John Hering from Microsoft gave an update on the implementation of the Tech Accord. Melody Bendindindang from the Asia Pacific Network Information Centre (APNIC) presented the “Honeynet Project” and a “Dashboard for Autonomous System Health (DASH)”. Peter Davies from the British government informed about the “Safe Online Project” of the UK Commonwealth Cyber Programme in which 22 Commonwealth countries participate[1]. After its reconstitution in January 2020, the GFCE wants to distinguish itself more pronouncedly as a kind of clearinghouse for cyber security.
