Stijn Vande Casteele, founder and CEO of Sweepatic:
Since COVID-19, digitization has increased dramatically in many organizations, leading to larger, complex and more exposed online footprints. The unique and fully automated Sweepatic platform generates actionable insights to proactively help and inform customers so that they become more resilient to cyber attacks. It does this by setting up a very extensive exploration from the outside, so that redundant websites, outdated software and the like can be detected and cleaned up. In this way, criminals can find less and they are very discouraged.
