Minister Eamon Ryan officially opened the new Espion offices in Deansgrange, Co. Dublin, on Friday 14th May. The new premises will cater for Espion’s business growth and accommodate new staff, as the Irish Information Risk and IT security specialist is looking to create 12 new jobs in the next 18 months.
“I am delighted to open this new premises with its emphasis firmly on the future. The Internet continues to play an increasingly positive role in our business and personal lives – which is why it’s so important to be aware of the risks and to know what to do about these risks.

“This smart economy is realisable, it is achievable, it will provide the jobs unlike any other area, and we are determined to go out and deliver those”

Since its creation in 2001, Espion has worked with companies to ensure that the critical information essential to their success is secure and compliant. Espion has built a strong reputation as an experienced, highly qualified, reliable partner that clients can call on to safeguard their critical information.
“We use a collaborative approach with our clients and our team of highly experienced consultants look to fully understand the client’s business first and from there we can determine the risks and exposures that may exist and help the client understand, manage and mitigate those risks,” added Morrissey. “Our continued success has been based on our ability to anticipate and respond quickly to both information risk and technological advances, allowing clients to benefit from innovation while keeping information risk to a tolerable level.”
The next phase of Espion’s growth builds on this experience and looks to meet the continually evolving demands of this dynamic environment. Focusing on the three key areas of R&D, International expansion and new services offerings Espion is working towards being a part of Ireland’s renewal in building a Smart Economy.
R&D – R&D to date has included the Irish Honeynet Project (a project that from 2002-2008 researched the level of hacking on Irish based computers in Ireland which had a broadband connection to the Internet) and well as many other initiatives for government (the Make IT Secure campaign) and for private companies (including WIFI and other related technologies research). Espion is now planning to further invest in this area.
International Expansion – Leveraging internationally recognised industry accreditations and the positive associations linked with Irish ICT, as well as global demand for the services Espion offers. The company is well positioned to look at developing in foreign markets. Espion has recently won contracts in Scotland and is recruiting to service that business.
