Learn about the latest trends and developments in Cyber Security; find out about the solutions developed by Israeli companies and have the chance to discuss with our experts and meet selected Israeli companies. 

Global hacker attacks and the growing threat of cyber-terrorism, impact us on all walks of life. In particular, sensitive industry sectors such as transport, energy and water supply, financial services, medical facilities or the pharmaceutical and chemical industries urgently require solutions to deal with these threats.

Faced with ongoing dangers both in the physical as in the digital world, Israeli companies positioned themselves early on, from the outset of the Information Age, as world leading experts in Cyber Security. Indeed, Israel's security strength is based on innovative technologies, operationally proven methods and comprehensive training and qualification of human resources. The solutions offered by Israeli startups are predominantly customised to meet specific requirements.

The potential of utilising this experience has long been recognised by large international corporations. "The solutions will come from Israel," predicted Telekom CEO Thomas Kremer, who spoke on IT security and data protection at the Cyber Security conference in Tel Aviv in July 2017.

At the Frankfurt – Tel Aviv B2B Talk we will get first-hand insights from Israel’s Cyber Security Industry. This event also intends to create a bridge between Israeli startups to the Frankfurt’s business sector.
