Enterprise Ireland supported Cyber Security start-up companies participating in 2-day summit with international partners
International cyber security experts convene in Cork today to meet with cyber start-ups from across Ireland as part of Enterprise Ireland’s Cyber Security Summit. Delegates and speakers at today’s conference include representatives from globally recognised brands within the Information and Communication Technologies sector including Oracle, Stripe, Dell and Flexport.
Commenting this afternoon, Martin Corkery, Regional Director at Enterprise Ireland, Cork said, “Ireland is home to over forty of the Cyber sector’s leading multinationals and over sixty indigenous startups that are having a real impact on the sector globally. Ireland has a growing reputation in this field and that presents an opportunity for us to support these start-ups to build scale and look to expanding their reach in international markets.
“To enable this to happen, events of this nature are essential and help to build strong international business partnerships between Irish enterprises and potential investors.
“The Cyber Security Summit is focused on exchanging valuable insights between industry experts and indigenous companies, so that we can further enhance the knowledge base of these companies with a view to innovating and competing on the global stage.
“Cork and the South of Ireland is an ideal base for indigenous Cyber companies to start and scale particularly as there are so many multinationals located in the region with the potential to partner and do business with. We look forward to welcoming the international delegation to the city to showcase the range of innovative business solutions on offer from Irish companies in the region.”
