Don't give cyber criminals any chance in 2018

Get started with the cybersecurity reference guide

Criminals who are looking for a financial advantage or who want to cause damage to companies or organisations, are operating more and more online. On the other hand, businesses are increasingly dependent on ICT, which makes them vulnerable to cybercrime.

In 2016, two third of Belgian companies became victims of cybercrime. For most companies, the damage was limited to a disruption of daily operations, but for 9% of the companies affected by cyber extortion and blackmail, the damage amounted to more than 10.000 euro's (Source:, 29/6/2017).  

Online reference guide helps you on your way

Due to a lack of expertise, time or resources, the step towards a detailed cybersecurity policy is very high for some organisations.

Nevertheless, it is important for every organisation to work out a good cybersecurity plan. To help companies and organisations on their way, the Center for Cybersecurity Belgium, in collaboration with the Cyber Security Coalition and the FPS Economy, has created an online reference guide.

The guide provides both basic services and more advanced actions, bundled into 4 categories: planning, risk analysis, security and follow-up.

With each measure, a description, practical information and useful links to websites and tools will help you even further. This way, your organisation can increase its cybersecurity level step by step, limit cybersecurity risks, reduce vulnerabilities and improve resilience.
