Israel to Host Major Cyber-Security Expo Next Week

Israeli cyber startups notched a very profitable year in 2015 and this upcoming year’s cyber arena looks ripe for even further growth. According to a new report, Israel exported at least $3 billion worth of products and services last year.

Israel Export Institute figures show that Israel is a cyber superpower. New cyber technology startups – being formed and making exits – proves the country’s stronghold in the global cyber arena.

In fact, state leaders and international cyber experts are heading over to Israel for the January 26-27 CyberTech in Israel convention.

Hundreds of delegations from across the globe will attend CyberTech — the second largest exhibition of cyber technologies worldwide — including a large delegation from Japan, a US delegation led by the Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security, a delegation from developing countries organized by the World Bank, as well as a Canadian delegation comprising senior executives of Canada’s central banks.

Also on the guest list: delegations from Germany, the UK, Italy, Holland, France, Australia, Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan, India, South Korea, Vietnam, the Philippines, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Kenya, South Africa, Ecuador, Panama, Guatemala, Colombia, Sweden, Ireland, Spain, Czech Republic, Romania, Albania, Estonia, the EU and NATO.

The delegation from Japan includes a group looking for suitable technologies to secure the Tokyo Olympics 2020 from potential cyber threats.

Israel Aerospace is leading a consortium of Israeli cyber security companies – including Check Point Software Technologies, Verint Systems, Bynet, ClearSky, CyberX, and ECI Telecom – that are hoping to attract Japanese interest with a special exhibit at CyberTech.

The CyberTech event will allow B2B, startups, investors, government officials, military personnel, ambassadors and exhibition visitors to focus on networking, strengthening existing alliances, and forming new ones.

CyberTech presents problem solving strategies and solutions to challenges in a wide range of sectors including finance, defense, transportation, utilities, R&D, energy, manufacturing, service sectors, health, media, and government.
