Ireland’s first Cybersecurity Sector Analysis & Survey

Survey Deadline 30th of September

We have found that there are no comprehensive data or reports on the size and scale of Ireland’s cyber security sector. We are now undertaking research to analyse the sector, including the companies, operations, the contribution to the economy and potential future growth.

Initial research has identified 480 companies employing 7,200 people in cyber security.

We are currently surveying all 480 cyber-related companies in Ireland to provide further information on their organisation’s cyber security operations.

For further info and to participate in the survey contact: joseph.osullivan@CyberIreland.ie
