Just a few months ago Belgacom revealed the information that malicious software has been found on the network of BICS, a daughter company of Belgacom which controls the communication of a large part of the world. This was a major hacking of a large and important Belgian company. But not only large and important companies are a target for malicious hackers. Also small and medium sized companies can hold crucial information about themselves, about clients or about other valuable processes and assets. Our businesses, regardless of their size, are also more and more dependent on digital connectivity and crucial information.
This information and its corresponding dependencies have to be protected by good information security governance. To help businesses in Belgium protect their companies against severe damage stemming from cybercrime, a guide has been developed with 10 key principles, 10 action points and a self assessment questionnaire. This questionnaire will help you to evaluate the security situation in your own company and to see which basic rules you can or should apply.
This guide was developed by a joint effort between ICC Belgium, VBO-FEB, EY, Microsoft, LSEC, ISACA Belgium and the B-CCENTRE. We sincerely hope this booklet will guide you through some basic security rules and help you to stay safe.
Be Cyber Secure !
With the increase of digitalisation of society, criminals also discovered the advantages of this new evolving technology and the internet. Law enforcement agencies are more confronted with traditional crime where digital evidence is being seized. First responders of the Local police in Belgium also receive an increasing amount of complaints about cyber related crime. To make Belgian police officers better acquainted with digital evidence and cybercrime, the Police Academy in the province of East Flanders (OPAC) launched in the beginning of 2013 cybercrime training for local police officers. The idea of organising this kind of training came from the Office of the Public Prosecutor in Dendermonde and the Regional Computer Crime Unit (RCCU) of Dendermonde. The training was developed in collaboration between the Office of the Public Prosecutor in Dendermonde, RCCU Dendermonde, Gent and Oudenaarde. A workgroup together with the Local police of Meetjesland, Puyenbroeck, Dendermonde Berlare Zele, and others evaluated this training. Read More
