Recommendations for a secure online campaign

The guide "Stay safe online during the election campaign" is a publication for political parties and their candidates.

Elections are the cornerstone of the democratic process. Terrorist groups, criminals or political bodies may try to influence the outcome.

With this guide, we want to give candidates all the keys they need to improve their level of cybersecurity, limit cybersecurity-related risks and reduce digital vulnerabilities.

The guide "Stay safe online during the election campaign" is an initiative of the Belgian State Security Services (VSSE) the Centre for Cybersecurity Belgium (CCB) and the General Intelligence and Security Service (SGRS/ADIV). Each of these organisations contributed to the development of this guide with their unique expertise.

CERT.be is your contact for reporting cyber incidents and questions before, during and after the elections.
