Cybertech Global, the world’s largest cyber conference outside the US, is back in Tel Aviv following a two-year forced hiatus due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Established in Tel Aviv 8 years ago, the event will take place over three full days and include an exhibition as well as a conference with various sessions pertaining to the hottest topics in cyber:
· AI and ML
· Critical infrastructure protection
· Cyber in the service of medicine, maritime transport and civilian aviation
· Ransomware attacks
· Innovation and technology
· And so much more…
This year, Cybertech Global TLV will include a first of its kind event featuring the Israel Security Authority (ISA, or Shin Bet), which will discuss the ways the intelligence organization contributes to the development of an innovative ecosystem and the acceleration of start-up companies.
Another first-time event will be devoted to the need of human capital diversification in the hi-tech industry, placing on emphasis on women, the Arab population, and the ultra-orthodox sector. This unique event will feature top members of the industry, which is suffering from a crippling lack of human resources.
