The Cyber Security Coalition is launching the campaign Cyber Security Personality of the Year 2022, an award that recognizes and celebrates the achievements and efforts of Belgium-based cyber security experts and enthusiasts working to improve the country’s cyber resilience.
Bolster Belgium’s cyber security resilience
Our Mission is to bolster Belgium’s cyber security resilience by building a strong cyber security ecosystem at national level. We do so by bringing together the skills and expertise of the academic world, the private sector and public authorities on a trust-based platform aimed at fostering information exchange and implementing joint actions.
Women in cybersecurity are essential, and their lower ratio in the workforce cannot be ignored. It is important to have role models and see women succeeding in cybersecurity. We are fortunate to have many women in our community who support our #BreakTheBias campaign on the occasion of International Women's Day #IWD2022.
