Tech Summit Cork 2020

it@cork in consultation with the board and various industry groups has taken the decision to postpone the 2020 Cork Tech Summit, which was due to take place on May 7th in Cork City Hall. Due to the escalation of the Covid-19 situation, we feel strongly that this is the right and responsible decision. 

Naturally, we are disappointed that one of our flagship annual events is postponed.  Now in its 10th year, Tech Summit Cork has grown year on year in terms of attendance, the quality of speakers, insights, learning and business opportunities. However, with the situation evolving rapidly, we are committed to doing our part to protect the welfare of our staff, members, contributors and the wider community.

The event is now rescheduled to September 16th 2020 in Cork City Hall and will take place alongside a series of it@cork led events that same week creating a tech festival. 

We wish to thank all our stakeholders, sponsors and supporters of Tech Summit Cork who have contributed to the 2020 event thus far this year.  We look forward to working with you throughout the year and towards delivering a truly exceptional tech conference in September. 

We recognise the impact Covid-19 is having on our members and we are on hand to offer any assistance or advice during these unprecedented times so please do not hesitate to contact us.  Our thoughts are with those affected at this time.

Tech Summit Cork is back!

Cyber Security- Designing for a new era of threats and complexity.
We are now in a new era of cyber security where the focus has shifted from ‘security by prevention’ to ‘security by design’. With the volume of data, fuelled by connected devices, set to grow exponentially over the next 5 years, security by design is becoming a fundamental development approach to ensure security and privacy of devices and systems are maintained. This track will examine how the design/architecture functions are increasingly driving the cyber security agenda within organisations, cities and society at large.
Smart Cities- Are Smart Cities a smart idea?
 By 2050, 66% of the world’s population is expected to live in urban areas. The challenge will be in supplying these populations with basic resources like safe food, clean water and sufficient energy, while also ensuring overall economic, social and environmental sustainability. This track will examine how leveraging digital technology is the key to delivering positive impact to urban regions but Smart Cities come from Smart designs. We must design with a citizen-centric approach so genuine human benefit can result and cities remain places to live as well as work.
