Award Ceremony – Cyber Security Personality of the Year 2021

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Coalition had to cancel its lustrum celebration in 2020.  However, we will celebrate our impending sixth anniversary in December. We will take this opportunity to present the ‘Cyber Security Personality of the Year’ award, a new initiative launched by the Coalition to honour excellence, innovation and leadership in cyber security in Belgium.

We are honoured that Prime Minister Alexander De Croo will hand over the award to the Cyber Security Personality of the Year chosen by an independent, multi-disciplinary jury.

During this ceremony presided by our Chairman Mr. Jan De Blauwe, we also welcome other distinguished guests:

  • Mr. Mathieu Michel, State Secretary for Digitalization, in charge of Administrative Simplification, Privacy and the Management of Buildings
  • Mr. Pieter Timmermans, CEO VBO-FEB
  • Mr. Miguel De Bruycker, Managing Director of the Centre of Cyber Security Belgium and Vice-Chairman of the Coalition
  • Mr. Peter Zijlema, Member of the Dutch Cyber Security Council and General Manager IBM Benelux & Country General Manager IBM Netherlands.

We are very much looking forward to celebrating this special day with you!



In-person event at the VBO-FEB headquarters, Rue Ravensteinstraat 4, 1000 Brussels. Participation on invitation only.

The event will also be streamed so that members and guests can participate online.



Thursday, 2 December from 10:30 AM to 2:00 PM (lunch included)
