We also heard from Miguel De Bruycker, Managing Director of the Centre for Cyber security Belgium (CCB), on what we need for a cyber secure Belgium and how the Centre for Cyber security Belgium (CCB) and Beltug can collaborate to support companies and public institutions in their security challenges.

The third highlight of the evening was an international panel discussion with our President Claude Rapoport (Beltug) and his colleagues from our sister organisations Bernard Duverneuil (Cigref), Arthur Govaert (CIO Platform) and Dr. Hans-Joachim Popp (VOICE) to share their expectations from IT suppliers and cloud providers.

Beltug CEO Danielle Jacobs took the opportunity to announce the joint initiative ’11 fair principles for software providers’ from the four user associations. These principles will be used in our discussions with Belgian and EU regulators and software providers.
