The threat of cyber attacks has never been more apparent in Ireland.
In a year where two of the biggest global threats against businesses were both ransomware attacks, experts warn that it’s essential that Irish businesses equip themselves to ensure that they are as protected as possible.
Ireland is now one of the most dynamic business and technology hubs in Europe and as cyber attacks increase in sophistication and scale, the race is now on for Irish employers to make the right moves in ensuring that their businesses, employees and clients are protected and empowered to succeed.
The threats are so evident that earlier this year, Ireland’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) embarked on a major recruitment campaign for experts to help protect critical national infrastructure from potentially crippling cyber attacks.
Minister of State for Digital Development Seán Kyne emphasised the importance of security for businesses across Ireland, describing the potential for cyber attacks and ransomware attacks as “unfortunately real.”
