Cyber Expo Ireland 2019 – Countdown to November 26th

Cyber Security Data Compliance Expo

Cyber Expo Ireland 2019 - Countdown to November 26th

We are delighted to be hosting the third annual Cyber Expo Ireland in Dublin at the end of November 2019. Last years event was a great success, and the 2019 event will be even better. We are once again returning to the Irish Management Institute in Dublin, and encourage you to sign up and attend this open event.

The 2019 event will once again have a broad mix of Vendors, Value Added Resellers (VARs), Security Experts, and end-users brought together to discuss cybersecurity issues and solutions. This year's event has been extended to include workshop sessions operating under the banner of CyberConIreland. These sessions will deliver in-depth how-to information on cybersecurity. Feedback from last year flagged up that sessions like these would be something that would be of benefit to business and IT professionals.

Cyber Expo & CyberConIreland Knowledge Tracks

The cybersecurity landscape is complex and rapidly changing. Experts in the field can often make assumptions that business and IT professionals in organisations they work with are up to speed on the different attack types and evolving threats. This is not always the case, as most professionals are very busy fulfilling other essential roles within their organisations. The CyberConIreland sessions, in conjunction with the product showcases and expert advice via Cyber Expo, will provide business & IT professionals at all levels with the opportunity to learn in-depth about the various security threats and countermeasures available. This will enable them to have more detailed and meaningful conversations with cybersecurity solution providers, and therefore make more informed business and buying decisions.

CyberConIreland will have content from world-class providers on cutting edge technologies across the subjects of cybersecurity, cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain use, and data science (including AI, machine learning, and big data solutions).

There will also be real-world case studies and panel discussions spread across six knowledge tracks split over two times:
