When is Computer Science Day celebrated?

Computer Science Day has been held every December 9 since 1983. This date is not random, as it coincides with the birth of Grace Hopper, the first female programmer, who used the world's first electromechanical computer, the Harvard Mark I, contributing to the development of its second version: the Harvard Mark II.

Why is International Computer Security Day also celebrated?

International Computer Security Day was launched in 1988 as a result of the first case of network malware, known as the 'Morris Worm'. Launched by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), it is held on November 30 and its objective is to remind people of the obligation and/or need to protect themselves against any possible cybercrime.
