CIGREF undertakes many actions in the field of cybersecurity: information, education, publications, awareness… After creating a serious game called “Keep an Eye Out” designed to involve company’s employees in preventing digital risks, CIGREF now raised a public awareness campaign, called the “Hack Academy “. Initiated on October 1st 2015, this campaign wants to raise awareness among citizens through 4 episodes addressing 4 different digital risks one’s can be exposed to.

  • Martin shows his expertise in malwares
  • Dimitri hacks secure payment
