DocuSign opens Dublin cybersecurity research centre

Electronic signature company DocuSign is to open a new cybersecurity 'Centre of Excellence' in Dublin.

The Centre will be committed to conducting research into the latest cyberattacks and trends, while developing tools for the advanced detection of such threats.

The investment comes more than a year after the company announced 100 new jobs in Dublin.

The new investment was welcomed by Minister for Jobs, Enterprise and Innovation Mary Mitchell O’Connor, who said it would be a valued addition to Ireland’s existing strengths in the information and communications technology sector.
