Cyber Industrial Strategy Public Consultation 

The Department of the Environment, Climate and Communications (DECC) and National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) is undertaking the development of Ireland’s first industrial strategy for the cyber security sector.  

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.  

A Public Consultation document on the Draft Cyber Industrial Strategy has been launched and is open until5:30pm, Friday 26 April 2024.

The importance of the Cyber Industrial Strategy:

The public consultation is the cyber security sector’s opportunity to input into and shape the cyber industrial strategy to ensure that it is fit for purpose, meets the needs of industry and that it gets the investment it requires. 

To do so, the sector must engage with this public consultation to ensure a large number of responses and good quality inputs to demonstrate to government: 

  • The urgent need for this industrial strategy; 
  • That industry is engaged in the process and supports strategy; 
  • Why cyber security sector is a critical to our national security, economic growth of all digital sectors and for society. 

Cyber Industrial Webinar Strategy:

Cyber Ireland and the NCSC ran a webinar on the 11th April to raise awareness of this important consultation, the key information and the questions that requires input.
