Fighting Phishing in Belgium: our approach & results
In October 2017, the Centre for Cybersecurity Belgium (CCB) launched a new tool to combat phishing in Belgium. If you receive a suspicious email that looks like a phishing attempt, you can send it to the Centre for Cybersecurity Belgium (CCB) via firstname.lastname@example.org. It will be analyzed and, when necessary, the links it contains will be blocked on all major web browsers. Pieter-Jan and Andries from the CCB will explain how this tool works and illustrate the results after one year of email@example.com.
