Cyber Security: Luxembourg mobilises to raise public awareness

ABBL Published 17.10.2018

In the context of the European Cyber Security Month (ECMS), Europol, the European Banking Federation (EBF) and its public and private sector partners launched a joint cyber security awareness campaign.

Luxembourg is actively participating in this campaign to sensitise citizens across Europe and particularly in Luxembourg about the risks linked to cyber fraud.

The ABBL  and its members (Banque et Caisse d’Epargne de L’Etat, Luxembourg (BCEE), Banque Raiffeisen, BGL BNP Paribas, and ING Luxembourg), the Ministry of Economy, Security Made In Luxembourg and BEE Secure have joined forces to raise awareness on cyber security threats.

“The digitalisation of financial services and their use is growing. This is being followed by the intensification of more and more sophisticated attacks by hackers and criminals. To deal with the ingeniousness and the increasing complexity of the applied attack mechanisms, it is essential that cybersecurity professionals collaborate and share experiences and knowledge. The ABBL is pleased to collaborate with the Ministry of Economy, Security Made In Luxembourg and BEE Secure in order to promote the CyberSecurity week and to participate to the Cyber Scam Campaign.”

“Cyberscams are one of these threats that impact directly the essence of the trust citizens and companies can have in the Internet ecosystem. This not only generates direct losses but also a significant damage by reducing their will to conduct business online. If financial services are often targeted by such schemes they are far from being the only victims. That’s why partnering with the ABBL to raise the awareness of the public about this type of attacks and how to avoid them is of utmost importance for Security Made In Luxembourg.”

Pascal Steichen, CEO, Security Made In Luxembourg

From 17 to 23 October information material on the seven most frequent cyber fraud attacks will be published via our social media outlets.

Public-private partnerships are essential in the fight against cyber crime.
