LSEC - Leaders In Security

Welcome to LSEC, an internationally renowned Information security cluster, a not for profit organization that has the objective to promote Information Security and the expertise in BeNeLux and Europe. Founded by the University of Leuven (K.U. Leuven), supported by European Commission FP7 and leading a unique PAN European Private partnership that interacts with Public Institutions, LSEC connects security industry experts, research institutes and universities, government agencies, end users, funding bodies and technical experts who are driving national and European research agendas. LSEC activities aim to raise cyber security awareness, support innovation and competitiveness of the European IT- Security market and promote the visibility of its members.

LSEC is partner in Takedown, a European Project to support the fight against Organized Crime and Terrorist Networks. The project develops security tools for first line practitioners, and we need your support to design them and support us to face these major European challenges !

TAKEDOWN develops responses to criinal threats by using a multidimensional approach including social, psychological, economic and cultural aspects and integrates technological prevention instruments and societal prevention approaches in the solution development. As a part of the empirical research, TAKEDOWN has launched an European online survey in order to better understand the dimensions and major challenges related to organised crime and terrorist networks. The survey aims at collecting input for the development of effective and efficient security solutions as well as practical toolkits for first-line-practitioners and professionals.

The survey addresses a broad audience of practitioners from many different fields related to organized crime and terrorism. We therefore invite you as part of the target audience to participate in our survey, which you can access here:

Thank you very much for your support! Keep updated on the project through our project website: or follow us on Twitter:
