In association with

We were delighted to host our inaugural – and first of many, Dublin SASIG events on Thursday 28 September. Ireland has a long tradition of excellence in delivering information technology, as reflected in a highly developed tech sector. As in all advanced economies, organisations in Ireland face security challenges in the digital world and great opportunities. The emergence of new technologies will only complicate this.

Through our excellent set of speakers and panellists from Ireland’s cyber sector, we explored the key challenges we face and ways to overcome them: Whether it be the global problem of a seemingly ever-increasing skills gap, or the persistent threats from criminal gangs and other bad actors.
