Safeonweb to become big sister!

The Centre for Cybersecurity Belgium  launches a new initiative for companies and organisations in Belgium: Safeonweb@work. Safeonweb, which aims to make the entire population safer online, is getting a little brother: Safeonweb@work.  The aim of Safeonweb@work is to strengthen the cyber resilience of Belgian companies and organisations.  It does this by providing advice, recommendations and tools that enable organisations to identify and mitigate the vulnerabilities of their systems and to be alerted in case of cyber threats.
