Cyber Security Opportunities in Ireland

The cyber security sector employed 7,350* people in Ireland in 2022. This number is growing all the time as companies seek to protect themselves and respond to ongoing cyber threats. It also means that there is a skills shortage. The Cyber Security Industry is working with Academic Institutions in Ireland to address this skills shortage and ensure that there will be a new generation of trained professionals capable of preventing and responding to attacks on business and society well into the future.
