An overview of the Luxembourg Fintech Resource Center - Updated
The crisis that we face today with COVID-19 is unprecedented. In this troubled time, agility and adaptability are paramount. At the LHoFT, for the past 3 weeks, we have witnessed how Fintech companies are coping at their best with the current pandemic, and also what it means for the future of financial technology. The Fintech industry, our community (both our fintech startups, the institutional stakeholders and the private corporates) are turned to the future, to the novelty, to a world where collaboration goes alongside successful business. Collaboration also means solidarity especially today, because ‘alone you may go fast but together you go further’.
Nobody can predict how it will end but we can be sure that the world will be a better place if we join forces.
Many initiatives have been launched in Luxembourg by the Government, startups, corporates, individuals, media, associations to help and support each other. We have gathered below some initiatives of Luxembourg’s Fintech ecosystem. Many more can be listed.

In this time of COVID-19 crisis, Hacknowledge wishes to help by offering:
1) Technical watch of latest attacks targeting healthcare sector:
- Deliverable: 1 email per week (or more in case of major outbreak) summarizing the latest attacks against the healthcare sector and easy-to-implement workarounds and quick-wins in order to prevent healthcare workers or systems falling victim to these attacks.
- Service duration: weekly until the end of the crisis.
2) Assessment of the current risk exposure and attack surface for each healthcare structure:
- OSINT investigation: collection of public information that could be exploited by potential attackers, such as visible email addresses (useful for phishing campaigns actively exploited during the COVID-19 crisis).
- Services discovery based on publicly available IP ranges (no exploitation) in order to identify major risks and address them.
- Deliverable: report including easy-to-implement workarounds and quick-wins
- Service duration:1 day per structure
3) Furthermore Hacknowledge has decided to expand the Heath Crisis Solidarity Project to all actors engaged in the fight against COVID-19, making this newsletter available to other sectors.
