Cybersecurity Tips: Dixon among speakers at Secure Computing Forum event

Data Protection Commissioner Helen Dixon is among the keynote speakers at this year's cybersecurity and data protection conference Secure Computing Forum, a partnership between DataSolutions and Independent News & Media. "Cybersecurity and data protection and management are becoming increasingly important issues for Irish businesses," said Karen Preston, sales director at Independent News & Media.

Irelands Location As HQ For Multinationals Leaves It Vulnerable To Cyber Attacks

The fact that Ireland is home to the European headquarters for numerous multinationals and tech firms makes it more vulnerable to cyber attacks and threats, according to the former assistant attorney general for the US Department of Justice's National Security Division. John Carlin visited Ireland in 2015 in his Justice Department role because of the increasing number of US firms using the country as a base.

Tech-Savvy Young Staff Are Bigger Cybersecurity Risk

Younger workers pose a bigger cyber-security risk to businesses than their older peers - because they are less cautious about devices and data. Nearly half of Generation Z workers, typically aged in their late teens to early 20s, admitted to losing a device that was linked to a work email account. "It's clear from our survey findings that Irish office workers, albeit some more than others, are cautious because of the threat of cyber-attacks," said Dave Keating, group security director at DataSolutions.
