Minister Denis Naughten to Address EU Security Directive at (ISC)2 Security Congress EMEA
Blog Article Published: 10/11/2016
Denis Naughten will address (ISC)2 Security Congress EMEA delegates on the latest developments in Ireland’s National Cyber Security Strategy since its launch in 2015, including the requirement to transpose the European Union Security of Network and Information Systems Directive (2016/1148) into national law by May 2018. The digital economy is growing at 20 percent per year, and securing this sector is vital for the country’s long-term growth and nurturing its cloud computing and big data industries. The full agenda can be found here. Organized in partnership with MIS Training Institute, the Congress will feature three intensive days of deep-dive workshops, interactive think-tanks, panel debates and over 40 speakers discussing current events from the use of robots in security to the need for a new ‘creative commons for privacy’. Denis Naughten T.D., Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment said: “At a time when we are building capacity on cyber security to help industries bolster their cyber defences, I am pleased to support the (ISC)2 community in bringing together professionals across every tier of industry, here and across EMEA, to align international efforts against the cyber threats we face. Online threats are not confined to one industry or country, so we can no longer work in isolation but must share knowledge and expertise across sectors.” Other confirmed keynotes speakers include:
- Ade McCormack, Digital Strategist, and Financial Times columnist
- Barrie Millet, Head of HSSE & Resilience, E.ON U.K.
- Eoin O’Dell, Associate Professor, School of Law, Trinity College Dublin
- Nick Hawes, Reader in Autonomous Intelligent Robotics, School of Computer Science, University of Birmingham (U.K.)
- Mark Carolan, Head of Research and Development, Espion
