The involvement of people from academia is critical because they are at the cutting edge of knowledge which is constantly changing. We need people who are researchers and keeping up with the changing technology. We also need to have third level institutions educating people who will be the cybersecurity staff of the future. Many academics helped us to deal with the cyberattack on the HSE. Cyber Ireland is a formal organisation which connects the Government, academia and industry. I will be speaking at its conference, which is imminent.
