The Centre for Cyber Security Belgium (CCB) together with the Cyber Security Coalition are launching a national cyber security awareness campaign on phishing, as part of the European Cyber Security Month.

In Belgium, 9% of the internet users had financial losses because of fraudulent messages (Eurostat 2015). Criminals are making increasingly creative attempts at tricking people, using false messages that are so convincing that you will take the bait:

  • they will send you false messages that are so convincing that you will open the attachment,
  • they will promise you large rewards if you complete a questionnaire and leave your details,
  • they will issue threats if you do not respond,
  • and they are using more and more channels (e-mail, WhatsApp, Messenger, etc.).

You have probably already come across suspicous e-mails in your mailbox, which fish for sensitive information.

So think twice each time you receive a message, search for elements that could indicate phishing, and if you have the slightest doubt, forward suspicious messages to

Don’t get caught in the phishing net and test for yourself on how phishing-proof you are!

All campaign material and press release can be downloaded for free in our media section!
