3 tips!

Tip 1 procedure

Procedure for opening emails

Provide clear guidelines for your employees. What should they do when they receive a suspicious mail? Mobile devices require special attention. It may be more difficult to recognize a phishing attempt on your phone or tablet.

Tip 2 awareness

Create awareness in your company

Tip 3 hackt

Notify the incident to the CERT (federal Computer Emergency Response Team) via this report form. You can also report the incident to the local police. They will pass on the information to the Federal Computer Crime Unit, who will start an investigation. If personal data should get lost during the incident, the Data Protection Authority must be notified within 72 hours after discovery. (Source: FOD Economie)
