What is smishing, and how to protect yourself against it?

Have you ever received an SMS to your smartphone that asked you to follow a link for more information? It could be a delivery notice from an online store or postal service, or a notification of a new voicemail. Maybe the SMS seemed a bit off, and you might have wondered whether you should click the link or not. But you wanted to know where your parcel is or who left a message, so you went on and clicked it anyway.

CONCORDIA Map 2.0

It’s been more than two years since we have launched the CONCORDIA map displaying short courses and trainings for cybersecurity professionals.
The map is complementing the ENISA database of university related programs, and aims at showcasing in a structured way relevant content from all over Europe, thus contributing to building a European Education Ecosystem for Cybersecurity.

We are now coming back to you with great news. The CONCORDIA courses map was revamped and includes new features for the benefit of both the end users such as corporates, SME/startups, specialized organizations, individuals, and the course providers.

Research category winners in CONCORDIA WOMEN’s AWARDS

We already know CONCORDIA WOMEN’s AWARDS winners for the RESEARCH category! CONCORDIA has established the WOMEN’s AWARDs to recognize outstanding women working in cybersecurity and privacy, encourage young females to continue pursuing their careers in cybersecurity.

Companies are nowadays experiencing cyber-attacks on a daily basis. A cyber-attack can cost them on average €25,000. Smaller businesses are often targeted and hit harder, suffering repeat attacks which can lead to damaged reputations and potential closure.

The CODE 2021: Secure supply chains for digital sovereignty?

The pandemic has shown the importance of international supply chains and how dependent we are. Attacks in the virtual space may have an increasing impact on supplies in our analogue world. Reason enough for the Research Institute CODE (RI CODE) of the Universität der Bundeswehr München (UniBw M) to dedicate its annual conference “CODE 2021” to the theme “Supply Chain Sovereignty: Reality or Illusion?” and invite experts to look at the topic from different perspectives.

The EC-funded cyberwatching.eu project has made a significant impact in understanding cybersecurity R&I priorities and online solutions for SMEs across Europe.

In 2020, organisations faced a flood of new cyber threats and challenges. Digitalisation and IT security have become vital for companies. 

What (old and new) trends and threats await us in 2021?

European transition towards digitised and greener society & economy, is, to a great extent, facilitated by the EU’s achievements in science and research. Cybersecurity is not an exception! Cyberwatching.eu is ready to show you how the latest research in cybersecurity and privacy is adopted by European SMEs.

EU’s cybersecurity research and innovation play a crucial role in developing novel cybersecurity approaches and tools which strengthen the resilience of our companies and public administrations.
