A&L Goodbody's Bold Ideas student competition open for entries

A&L Goodbody has welcomed entries to its annual “Bold Ideas” competition.

Now in its fourth year, Bold Ideas is A&L Goodbody’s annual student innovation competition. It recognises the most innovative ideas from undergraduate and postgraduate students from all disciplines.

Managing Cyber Risk

In today’s cyber age as our world becomes ever more digitally connected, cyber risks are on the increase. According to a recent study by A&L Goodbody, less than a third of businesses across Ireland are fully prepared to deal with a cyber-attack. Individuals and businesses alike must consider how best to manage all facets of risk.

Identify a specific cyber risk challenge (current or potential) that you think society or business is facing. Tell us your “Bold Idea” to address this challenge - taking into account the various elements required to develop a comprehensive solution.
