Cybersecurity is an increasingly important and ever-growing topic within the Irish technology landscape due to the shift toward digital services and online solutions. As such, organizations and IT professionals across Ireland are forewarning the awareness of best security practices to assure the safety and security of digital and online data.
To increase knowledge, networks, and perspectives in the security environment, Ireland is host to numerous cybersecurity conferences and events to build a common understanding of cyber threats and how to tackle them.
The Cybersecurity Ireland Conference is a well-known event held in Dublin for industry professionals and security personnel. It offers a podium to share and discuss cybersecurity services, developments, and best practices among experts and business owners.
Another event is the Irish InfoSec Conf, which is organized by the Computer Security Incident Response Team Ireland (CSIRT-IE). This event is programmed to help build a strong cybersecurity community in Ireland by offering support and advice to respond to cyber threats.
For experts to stay up to date on the latest trends and developments, Infosec Ireland is an online platform where professional practitioners come together to exchange information about cyber threats and strategies to educate users on current best practices.
Aside from these conferences and events, Ireland also has several independent cybersecurity startups, such as chCP Security and Secure State, working to increase the security of businesses, organizations, and consumers. The Irish government and its respective agencies are working with these startups to grow Ireland’s cybersecurity landscape and develop safety measures for those working in the IT sector.
