On July 17, 2014, the Belgian government announced that it has finalized its Royal Decree on the establishment of a Cybersecurity Center (Centrum Cyber Security België or Centre Cyber Security Belgique). The Cybersecurity Center’s tasks would be to monitor the country’s cybersecurity and manage cyber incidents. It also would oversee various cybersecurity projects, formulate legislative proposals relating to cybersecurity, and issue standards and guidelines for securing public sector IT systems. The Cybersecurity Center is expected to be operational by the end of 2014.
