Ireland’s second annual cyber security conference, Dublin Information Sec 2017 will take place on November 1st in the RDS with topics like artificial intelligence, cloud technology and security, data protection and the Internet of Things set to be discussed by the speakers and panellists.
The conference will be chaired by Adrian Weckler, technology editor with Independent News & Media, which is behind the event and it is being sponsored by eir Business.
“While 2017 set new records for cyber security issues, 2018 looks likely to be an even greater challenge. Regulatory issues such as GDPR will have a huge impact on how companies can be punished for not responding correctly to security breaches, while the gradual move to cloud applications creates new risks never before experienced by Irish organisations. Dublin Information Sec aims to help businesses and public sector bodies deal with some of those issues,” says Adrian Weckler.
Bill Archer, Managing Director of eir Business and a lead sponsor of the event adds: “Our world is an increasingly networked one, impacting everything from personal accounts to global infrastructure. Recent high profile breaches internationally have highlighted the risk that hacks pose to the global economy, and protecting those networks is crucial for businesses large and small. In eir Business, we provide security services covering everything from vulnerability scanning and penetration testing to security incident response. Cyber criminals operate without borders and the focus of eir and our partners is always on the worldwide view, preventing malicious damage to customers and their contacts. This kind of conference is vital in raising awareness and we in eir Business are delighted to support it.”
Cliona Carroll, Sponsorship and Events Manager, INM added: “Businesses have faced huge IT security threats in the first half of 2017. It is crucial that businesses of every size are prepared with the most up to date technologies and data security tools. Dublin Information Sec aims to help businesses understand current cyber security threats. We are very pleased to welcome eir Business, a Cisco Gold Partner, once again this year as sponsor for the second annual event. ”
