Unique in Belgium, this centre now allows the networks and information systems of businesses and public bodies to be realistically replicated in order to prepare them for cyberattacks. Its use is also intended to educate students and enhance the training of cybersecurity specialists. In 2017, Thales plans to recruit approximately 400 employees worldwide in the cybersecurity field. In Belgium, 50 recruitments are planned in the next four years to support the rapid development of the activity.

In the heart of the ecosystem of institutions located in Belgium, the Tubize Cyberlab is part of the total offer of information system security of Thales, a European leader in cybersecurity and global leader in data protection. It meets the growing need of businesses, operators of essential services and public institutions faced with the rise in cyberthreats.

As the recent worldwide cyberattack WannaCry, which affected in particular the operational function of essential services like hospitals or rail transport, illustrates, administrations and businesses must prepare and train themselves to ensure the security of their information systems and protect their data. With this new Cyberlab, Thales can reproduce the information networks of an organisation, thanks to a dedicated platform, to test its resistance to the latest forms of cyberattacks.
