Ireland's first annual cybersecurity conference, Dublin Info Sec 2016, kicked off first thing this morning at the RDS Main Arena.
As the experts and delegates take a well deserved break from discussing The Internet of Things (among many other topics), we take a look back on the best sound bites from the morning session.
1) "We have built systems & services on the internet, but the internet was never designed to be secure" - Brian Honan
2) "We don't know how to report cyber crime...We are playing catch up...We need more resources" - Brian Honan
3) "Cyber crime is now the number one crime in the UK. In Ireland, we have ‘none’ because we don’t even report it in our crime stats" - Brian Honan
4) "Will Brexit affect our national plan to deal with potential cyber attack?" - Mary Aiken
5) "Anonymity is a "super power" in cyber space" - Mary Aiken
6) "Food supplies, fuel, utilities, medical services all potentially at risk from major cyber war" - Joseph Carson
7) "Ransomware is rampant but people don't report cyber attacks" - Garda Cyber Crime Bureau head Michael Gubbins
8) "As Ireland is a key supply chain partner of US business, then Ireland is in the firing line for a major cyber attack." - Joseph Carson
9) "There are huge challenges in the justice area on the issue of cyber security...much of what is happening is at a European level." - Tanaiste Frances Fitzgerald
10) "'Is the world a safer place with Trump in it?" - INM Technology Editor Adrian Weckler
With guest speakers such as Wikileaks' journalist Sarah Harrison and Snapchatter extraordinaire James Kavanagh lined up for the afternoon, expect a new top ten by the end of the conference.
