Cabinet FÉRAL advises its clients on the prevention of and response to cybercrime.

Cybercrime can take various forms, from targeted attacks on data processing systems to the commission of traditional online offences (counterfeiting, identity theft, cyber stalking, fraud, etc.).

Cabinet FÉRAL assists its clients by providing them with personalised information on the risks specific to their situation and by advising them on the implementation of a cybersecurity strategy, with a view to preventing and managing these risks.

In addition to risk governance, Cabinet FÉRAL’s lawyers act for their clients in cyber crisis management, in the prosecution of offences of which they could be victims and in the implementation of corrective and remedial measures.
