Invitation press conference Safeonweb campaign
Do you sometimes get suspicious messages? An e-mail with an overly attractive offer or a text message that seems to come from your bank? You are not alone: we are being inundated by a tsunami of suspicious messages. Thankfully, we often outsmart the scammers, but their messages can be so misleading that many people fall for them anyway. In 2020, phishers were able to carry out 67,000 fraudulent transactions for a total amount of approximately 34 million euros.
The Centre for Cybersecurity Belgium, Febelfin and the Cybersecurity Coalition are joining forces this year and, together with more than 500 partners, are taking up the fight against phishers. When cybercriminals unite and organise themselves better, we must do the same. Only then can we make the Internet a safe place again!
We are convinced that we can prevent many victims thanks to alert citizens and quick initiatives from organisations. Because phishing can only be defeated through group immunity and the "all against one principle". You will find out how we are going to do that during this press conference.
