North-West Skills Report

Regional Skills North West and Cyber Ireland have partnered to commission a “Cyber Security Skills Audit Report” to examine the shape of the cybersecurity sector in the North West region of Ireland.

The report outlines the region’s strengths to attract companies seeking new locations for cybersecurity services giving a positive outlook for the region, while also highlighting improvements needed for the future of the sector. With the right investment and supports in place, the report forecasts that the North West region could see growth in cybersecurity-related jobs quadruple from 250 this year to 830 jobs by 2030.
