Cyber security specialists descend on Killarney

One panel discussion will focus on national security and defence, asking if cyber warfare is likely

LEADING international cyber security specialists will convene in Killarney this Friday for a very important and informative Cyber Security Transatlantic Policy Forum.

Industry leaders, policy makers, politicians and law enforcement agencies from the US, Britain and Ireland will gather at The Brehon to share insights and experiences, discuss trends and examine available opinions and solutions at the inaugural one-day conference.

As well as working to improve and expand government, academic and private sector collaborations in cyber security, the event will focus on the latest intelligence on how to safeguard against cyber-attacks.

The keynote speaker will be Sir Rob Wainwright, Senior Partner for Deloitte’s Cyber Practice and the former Director of Europol while David Stanton, TD, Minister of State for Equality, Immigration and Integration, will deliver the opening address.

The high-profile event will turn the spotlight on the latest developments and how an increasing dependency on cloud providers could create weaknesses. Delegates will also examine the extent that divergence in regulatory and legal frameworks exacerbate vulnerability to cyber attacks, how criminals are evolving their capabilities to avoid detection and the most successful investigative tools that can be deployed to enhance security.

With a global skills shortage and a projected market for cyber security products and services of almost $250 billion by 2023, research and innovation can truly have impact and those in attendance will focus on the unsolved challenges of cyber security and the new technologies that could emerge.

One panel discussion will focus on national security and defence, asking if cyber warfare is likely and how much of a threat does the 5G network pose to national and international security?
