Belgium joins No More Ransom, starts campaign

Wednesday 26 April 2017 | 11:52 CET | News
The Belgian government is launching a campaign against ransomware together with the Centre for Cyber Security (CCB) and the Federal Computer Crime Unit, Datanews reported. The campaign will cooperate with a number of international partners, including Kaspersky Lab, as well as with Interpol, Europol and similar type organisations, as perpetrators usually live outside abroad. Belgium started taking part in the "No More Ransom" project launched in April in the country, and the year before in the Netherlands.
