Nihon Cyber Defence, a Tokyo-based cybersecurity company, is branching into the UK by opening an office in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and offering services in both Ireland and the UK, according to an article posted on the tech website Siliconrepublic on 13 September.
The CEO—Northern Ireland-born Cartan McLaughlin—described the move as a long-term ambition. The new office will create 10 new jobs and primarily focus on the legal, accounting and critical infrastructure sectors. This is not the first time Nihon Cyber Defence has employed Northern Irish workers. The company has placed multiple master’s degree students from the city of Belfast.
