30 million euro extra for the fight against cybercrime

The Federal Justice Minister Vincent Van Quickenborne (Flemish liberal) has announced that 30 million euro in addition funding will be invested in tackling cybercrime. Last year cybercriminals stole 34 million euro from people in Belgium by means of phising. They sent text messages or emails in which they took on a false identity in order to obtain their victims' bank details and/or pin codes and unlawfully take money from their accounts.
