At The Epicenter of Information Security Innovation
InfoSecurity Ireland (ISI) is all about advancing Ireland as a center of Information Security excellence, increasing the competitiveness of Irish technology companies abroad and establishing the country as the global marketplace for breakthrough IT security products and services.
Recent high profile cyber-attacks in Ireland and the US demonstrate the vulnerability facing today’s globally connected infrastructure. President Obama claimed it is “one of the most serious economic and national security challenges” facing the United States and Minister Ryan just committed to a cyber-security strategy for Ireland. Information Security professionals, with deep intelligence on the matter, contend that an international cyber attack of high magnitude could match and even exceed the economic consequences of Global Warming.
When it comes to cyber-security, we’re experts, with national attributes that extend beyond our tradition of neutrality and our IT excellence. Our body of security knowledge is unmatched, and we have special expertise in data privacy regulations and international cyber-security standards. But the backbone of our InfoSecurity edge is our population of skilled software professionals – many of them veterans of multi-national tech giants; all known for their inventive data protection solutions.
ISI is harnessing this massive bank of cyber-security talent to create a dynamic alliance—a networked value-chain of influential stakeholders that include research institutions, academia, regulatory authorities and the government agencies that champion indigenous innovation.
We’ve set an ambitious agenda, but we’re already ahead. Because in today’s global digital economy—and especially in the EU—Ireland sits at the epicenter of InfoSecurity innovation primed to take a leading role—as arbiters and enablers—in the world-wide effort to secure the data streams that power the economy and influence our lives.
