Cybersecurity is a prerequisite for the IT-based handling of business processes for higher education institutions. Humans play a key role in ensuring cybersecurity. Likewise, users need to learn how to properly handle devices, techniques, and IT services. The Technical University of Munich (TUM) worked intensively on this topic. We collected information on possible activities then developed and implemented various educational campaigns targeted to students and staff. One of them was embedded in the European Cyber Security Month (ECSM). We used a variety of formats, including traditional events, ads, printed matter, and online-only methods.

Outcomes: Understand the importance of cybersecurity awareness campaigns * Identify good practices to adapt * Learn how to find the right wording to engage students and staff * Be able to start your own campaign
