The Belnet Project Management Office is responsible for the smooth running of all internal and client-related projects. Thanks to a structured and uniform way of working, you can be assured of proper monitoring of your project, transparent communication and an optimum result. Our colleague and Project Manager Elke Dierckens explains how project management works at Belnet.
The purpose of DoS or DDoS attacks is to disable your website, server or network. In particular, organisations with a critical IT infrastructure are often victims, such as banks, Internet service providers or hospitals. DDoS attacks have increased steadily in frequency in recent years. With the COVID-19 pandemic forcing our schools, work and social life onto the Internet, they have increased considerably in number and scale. In Q1 2020, there were almost twice as many DDoS attacks compared to Q1 2019.
In 2020, there is no need to doubt the threat posed by phishing. We could spend so much time trying to size the risk that phishing poses to our society, our organisations. I am not even sure I could give you an accurate estimation of this risk. There is so much unknown. However, for many of us, being targeted by cyber-attacks using phishing is now part of our typical day, or, at least, a typical week.
Are you looking for tools to strengthen the resilience of your organisation in the field of cyber security? The Cyber Security Coalition, of which Belnet is a part, has several ready-to-use tools available on its website. All existing tools have been recently updated. You can also try a new tool: an online game on safe homeworking.
The coronavirus crisis is having a major impact on the way universities and colleges are working. In order to allow its students to remotely attend and review lessons, the Université libre de Bruxelles (ULB) will use a podcast service in the new academic year. The university approached Belnet to implement this service quickly.
Last June, we conducted a survey of our community in order to know their opinion on the modification and / or creation of certain security services and more particularly the Belnet DDoS Mitigation service and the potential future DNS filtering and eduVPN services.
