The Cyber Security Coalition is launching the campaign Cyber Security Personality of the Year Award, a new 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.
Agoria/Sirris & HOWEST/UGent present the findings of a first study on cybersecurity in the Belgian manufacturing industry. Based on the survey findings ten recommendations were made to help companies on their digitalization journey in a cyber-safe way.

During the last Privacy Focus Group meeting, the VBO-FEB explained the functioning and the advantages of the interactive DPO Connect platform which was set up by the Data Protection Authority (DPA) in collaboration with DPO-Pro and the Vrije Universiteit Brussels (VUB) with the support of the European Commission.
During the first in-person meeting since the Corona pandemic broke out, the Privacy Focus Group engaged into a lively discussion on the effectiveness and strategic role of the DPO and addressed the question whether one single person can wear the hat of both CISO and DPO.
