Government has set a vision for Ireland to be a leading nation in harnessing cyber as an engine of economic growth and societal development. Ireland’s Cyber Industrial Strategy is, first and foremost, a means of realising the Irish cyber vision of a diverse skilled workforce, a mature research community that engages at a global level, and a vibrant export oriented indigenous industry.
