The past year has seen further development of the National Cyber Security Centre in response to the Capacity Review as endorsed by government. New regulatory developments, notably NIS2, and geopolitical situations are leading to a more assertive and dynamic approach. 

The National Cyber Security Strategy is under review, and new arrangements to support industry, the public sector and research are underway.

Technology Facilitated Abuse is a form of domestic violence that provides abusers with a pervasive way to control, coerce, stalk and harass their victims.

Behaviours include spying on and monitoring victims using tracking systems & stalker-ware and abusing victims on social media sites by sharing intimate photos and videos of the victim without their consent.

This panel will discuss the scale of the problem at a national level in Ireland, how pervasive the problem is, the measures in place and programs and projects tackling this issue at a societal level.
