Event description


The future of cybersecurity is now. As cyber attacks grow increasingly sophisticated each year and regulations are changing, companies need to anticipate developments and stay ahead of the curve. The widespread adoption of Artificial Intelligence and cloud technologies coupled with the increasing demand of new cybersecurity skills means one thing: staying on the cutting edge of cybersecurity and skills development. Leading organisations in the security space are gathering on September 24th 2019 at the Cork Opera House to join forces and discuss the future of cybersecurity. Come mark the launch of the first and biggest cybersecurity conference in Cork and join us in shaping the future of cyber.

The conference will include a series of keynote presentations, panel discussions and briefings held by cyber security practitioners and thought leaders operating at the very cutting edge of the industry.
