< 1 min leestijd

Last Thursday, Prime Minister Alexander De Croo addressed the Belgian cybersecurity community virtually at a ceremony organized by the Cyber Security Coalition to honour Belgium’s first Cyber Security Personality of the Year. The honour was for Mrs. Rosanna Kurrer, Co-founder, and Managing Director of CyberWayFinder.  

The Prime Minister emphasized that cybersecurity is not only a matter of economics. It is a matter of defending our most fundamental rights and freedoms: our right to privacy and our democracy.  

He congratulated Mrs. Kurrer for making the Belgian cybersecurity community stronger and smarter by increasing its diversity.  

He thanked the entire community for all their invisible but much appreciated efforts in protecting Belgian society from cyberattacks.
