Paul’s public relations firm, Paul Allen & Associates, has been heavily involved in providing in depth communications support to firms affected or at risk of being affected by cyberattacks. The team at the firm has a huge level of practical experience and expertise in managing communications around cyberattacks, a growing specialist field in public relations.
Commenting on receiving the qualification, Paul Allen said; “Cybersecurity has become a major focus of our firm in recent years. We have been fortunate to work with many clients in building crisis communications plans, reporting data breaches and developing strategies to maintain and repair trust and confidence following attacks and service disruptions. Here in Ireland, high-profile and highly-damaging cyberattacks has led to huge level of fear, especially in those companies still using old software. As with most things, being prepared is key.“
In the course of his career, Paul has worked with five Taoisigh, two US Presidents, two UK Prime Ministers and was extensively involved in the Northern Ireland Peace Process. A veteran of Irish political campaigns, Paul also managed four Irish Presidential campaigns.
More recently, he developed and managed the hugely successful ‘Irish For Biden’ campaign alongside the Democratic Party in the US.
