Cyber Security Expo Comes to Limerick

Cyber Expo Roadshow Lands in Limerick.

Limerick Tech Firm ActionPoint will be joining security leaders from across the Cyber Security ecosystem for Cyber Expo Limerick – visiting the Radisson Blu Hotel in Limerick on the 1st of May, this ½ day session (8am-1pm) will concentrate on product education, awareness, demos and practical advice offered to attendees from these market leading security solution providers.

In keeping with the Security Ecosystem theme, the Regional Expos will be open to both End Users and Resellers in the Irish market. Value added Resellers are welcome to assess the products and solutions and gauge best fit for their portfolios, while SMB and Corporate Users can see first-hand how they can apply Data Security and Compliance solutions within their organisations to develop and deliver their Cyber Security Strategy, manage their many regulatory requirements and generally understand what they can do to mitigate security risks to their business.

Local Renaissance partners include ActionPoint, Intuity and ICT Skillsnet. All companies will be present on the day to help advise and guide businesses on the best approach to tackle Cyber Security challenges.

Cyber-crime is now head-lining the risks for businesses in Ireland1. According to this PWC report, 49% of Companies have suffered an economic crime or fraud since 2016 and this increasing trend means that economic crime in Ireland is happening faster than anywhere else in the world. And it cannot be considered as just an IT problem. Often the attacks are targeted at the unsuspecting employee with Phishing being a prominent technique for cyberattacks (66%), followed by malware (56%) across all company departments. It is therefore critical that all business leaders are involved in the education and awareness of their staff to mitigate the risk to their business at all levels.

Michael Conway, Director of Renaissance Ireland and thought leader behind Cyber Expo Ireland feels that “what is most productive is being given the tools to respond before true devastating damage can be inflicted. With the stakes rising and the cost of a breach remaining evermore debilitating, Governments and Organisations of ALL sizes are having to rethink their Cyber Strategy. We are all being forced to up our game across the entire threat lifecycle – prevention, detection, response.”

The Limerick Exhibitors will include:

Aerohive – Cloud Managed Networks & a New Way to Wi-fi; Altaro -VM Backup & Recovery for SMEs & Cloud Dependent Businesses; Appixoft – High-End User Workspace Management Solution – Scense; Bitdefender – Endpoint Protection & Authentication Compliance; Ericom – Mobile/Tablet Remote Desktop & Virtual Desktop Access; Solarwinds – Network/System/Database/Application Management & DevOps; Sophos – Next-Gen Endpoint Protection & Phish Threat Management; Tenfold – Next-Gen CTI, Consistent Customer Experiences across Voice and Digital Channels; Watchguard – Next-Gen Firewall & Network Analysis.
