The creation of the Cyber Defence Lab was an incremental process. So it's hard to define a precise birth date. There is actually only one date that can be seen as our birth date: the day we registered our domain name cylab.be. And that was on 21 October 2016. So we turn 7. Happy birthday to us!
In 7 years we have grown from 4 people to 17. And the number of funded projects we work on has increased from 1 funded project to 12.
At 7, the Cyber Defence Lab is just a kid, and we hope it will continue to grow in the future!
