Learning about online security

A MAJOR international cyber security conference will be hosted by the IEEA tomorrow.

The conference will bring together for the first time in Ireland a line-up of policymakers, industry leaders and global experts to discuss emerging threats in the digital age.

Recent large-scale cyber-attacks on global businesses and the growth of criminal activity on the so-called 'Dark Web' have highlighted the seriousness of online security threats and the conference is attracting a high-level of interest in Ireland and abroad.

Speakers will explore the scale of online threats, emerging criminal trends and the policy responses required to combat online security challenges.
