This all-day conference will focus on providing attendees with an overview of the current cyber threats facing businesses in Ireland and what they can do to help deal with those threats.

With the ransomware attack on the HSE still fresh in many people’s minds and the increasing focus on cybersecurity resulting from the Russian invasion of Ukraine and the increasing threat posed to individuals, businesses, society, and government systems by cyber criminals, IRISSCERT is hosting many world-renowned cybersecurity experts to highlight the risks we face and how to address them. It is expected that up to 500 people will be attending this year’s conference, a reflection on how the importance of cybersecurity has grown over the past several years.

This year’s speakers include Mikko Hyppönen, Chief Research officer for WithSecure and Special Advisor to Europol’s Cybercrime Centre (EC3), who will highlight the risks posed by smart devices in his talk “If its Smart its Vulnerable”.

Raj Samani Senior Vice President, Chief Scientist, Rapid7 and also a Special Advisor to Europol’s Cybercrime Centre (EC3), will also be addressing the conference and will share in insights from his work in tackling cybercrime.
