Dublin summit to address the future of transatlantic cyber security.
Leaders from government, industry and academia will convene for the Transatlantic Cyber Security Summit. Co-sponsored by the Georgia Tech Research Institute, Georgia Tech Ireland and the Office of Naval Research Global, the free, two-day event will focus on three priorities and challenges that will have the most significant impact on the future of transatlantic cyber security:
1. Thwarting Cyber Crime
2. International Collaboration & Information Sharing
3. Building the Cyber Workforce
The summit’s format will include keynote presentations, moderated open discussions and technical deep dives. Unlike other events that merely focus on the high-level issues of the international cyber security space, this conference offers the opportunity to learn from subject matter experts who are directly engaged in the battle against advanced persistent cyber threats.
Keynote speakers include:
- SeŠn Sherlock, TD, Ireland's Minister of State, Department of Enterprise, Jobs and Innovation, and Department of Education and Skills, with responsibility for research and innovation
