On Tuesday 4 May 2021, His Royal Highness the Hereditary Grand Duke and Luxembourg's Minister of the Economy, Franz Fayot, visited the premises of SECURITYMADEIN.LU, the Cybersecurity Agency for the Luxembourg Economy and Municipalities.

After a general presentation of the agency's activities,the Hereditary Grand Duke and the Economy Minister attended demonstrations including a scenario in ROOM#42, a cyber crisis simulator that allows teams participating in such an exercise to identify areas for improvement in order to consolidate their collective competence in crisis management.

A pillar of economic attractiveness for Luxembourg, "cybersecurity is fundamental to the development of a trusted digital economy" recalled Minister Franz Fayot, who congratulated Pascal Steichen, CEO of SECURITYMADEIN. LU, and his team for the work carried out in investigating and responding to incidents on the one hand and in supporting Luxembourg companies for better prevention and management of cyber risk on the other.

François Thill, Cybersecurity Director at the Ministry of the Economy and Chairman of the Board of Directors of SECURITYMADEIN.LU, thanked the government for its continued support in the development of cybersecurity in Luxembourg, allowing the country to position itself as a major player in Europe in this field.

Created in May 2010, the SECURITYMADEIN.LU agency offers services to companies of all sizes as well as to municipalities through three departments:

- CASES (Cyberworld Awareness Security Enhancement Services - Luxembourg), whose mission is to protect from and prevent cyber attacks;
- C3 (Cybersecurity Competence Center - Luxembourg), whose mission is to test and improve cyber resilience;
- CIRCL (Computer Incident Response Center Luxembourg), whose mission is to detect and react to cyber attacks.

The agency's multidisciplinary team is made up of 41 experts specialising in incident detection and treatment, protection and prevention, testing of cyber solutions as well as improving skills in the field of risk management.

With the creation of a platform dedicated entirely to the CYBERSECURITY Luxembourg ecosystem, SECURITYMADEIN.LU has redesigned its website in order to offer an information and advice portal as well as a repository of cybersecurity solutions aimed at supporting companies and municipalities in adopting cyber-responsible behaviour.
