Enda Kenny has welcomed Ireland getting 50 Russian agents (cough , sorry jobs) to Dublin

Kaspersky to create 50 jobs at new Dublin office - RTÉ News
Taoiseach Enda Kenny, who attended the announcement, said the investment is “an endorsement of Ireland as a hotbed for cybersecurity research, and a signal to other companies seeking skilled software programmers and data scientists”.
Wikipedia notes this of Kaspersky
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaspersky_Lab#Controversy
In March 2015, Bloomberg accused Kaspersky of having close ties to Russian military and intelligence officials. In 2007 the company itself claimed in its Japanese ad campaign with the slogan "A Specialist in Cryptography from KGB." The sales tactic, a local partner’s idea, was "quickly removed by headquarters."[41] However, Kaspersky himself graduated from the FSB Academy, formerly a KGB institution.[42] Kaspersky slammed the claims in his blog, calling the coverage "sensationalist" and guilty of "exploiting paranoia" to "increase readership," but did not state clearly whether these claims are true or not.[43]
Good to see Enda donning the Green Jersey ...wonder what colour his undies are though ?

Ireland couldn't withstand a cyber attack by a foreign aggressor. Might be no harm to get local Irish people experienced in this area and eventually use their skills for security of the State.

It's also an opportunity for the state to spy on kaspersky, which could be useful :)

I am sure that Kaspersky move to Ireland is on foot of the contract to protect P.ie, hopefully it can get the search function up and running without an error message.

Your Russophobia is becoming unhinged Cyp.


Don't suppose you'll be volunteering for the up coming conflict with the big bad Vlad, they're more to that vast country than him and his elite.

Or are you just trying to endear yourself to the Dinny/Teneo-Decl
an Kelly/Clinton axis of corruption and power.

We already have Symantec, AVG, Microsoft, etc.

Kaspersky is a big player - good to see them hiring here.

No to Vlad
No to [Redacted]/Declan

After that ...well I'd prefer Bernie Sanders over Clinton ...Ted Cruz over Trump

But it seems ...a devil's choice needs to be made on Clinton v Trump

When I tried to point out that very fact, the Moditariat took a few days (slow Soviets that they are) and hid my thread, even though by that stage it was an Irish Times lead story

Ireland's ability to withstand unorthodox attacks, e.g. Mark Hollingsworth
Ireland per se has two organizations that do counter/intelligence : Army and Garda

The Garda competency doesn't compare well by international standards, the IDF is somewhat better

In my experience, Irish political operatives neither have experience in tradecraft, nor cyber
Denis O’Brien ‘profiler’ worked for private investigation firm
Mark Hollingsworth, the only person known to have obtained the dossier of documents at the heart of Denis O’Brien’s legal action against Dublin PR firm Red Flag, did so while he was working with a London-based private intelligence-gathering company
I'm not comfortable about this...but if it's what's needed to rid us of Enda, then so be it

The Moditariat are known to stand to gain pecuniary and other advantage from such actions

There's quite a lot of Russian investment in Ireland - but they tend not to shout about it too loudly.
