Cyber Security and Ireland

Ireland is not an Island....As many of you know I am passionate about how we as a country secure the systems, networks and the critical elements of our national infrastructure that we all depend on.

I was recently interviewed by the Irish Examiner for an article Cyber Crime: The New Battleground, they ran on the threat posed to Ireland by criminals and others with malicious intent.

To be honest criminals go where the money is. I don't think GDP of an individual country matters given we throw funding at security but nothing seems to improve too much.

Nation state attackers may be more conscious of geographic location for obvious reasons but overall its all just copper wire and IP numbers and 1's and 0's
