Between the 28th and 30th of last month the Cybertech was held in the Israeli capital of Tel Aviv. This B2B event is one of the largest in both IT and OT cyber security in the world. Despite being held throughout the year in different parts of the world, Inprosec and InprOTech have decided to attend the Tel Aviv event.
The event has brought together more than 18,000 attendees, 200 companies and startups and more than 180 speakers from around the world. Many of the conferences have focused on cyber-attacks on critical infrastructure, with an emphasis on attacks on energy plants. Indeed, during the speech by Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz, it was announced that they had stopped an attack on one of his energy plants recently and that this was just one of many. Among the exhibitors, the strength of startups in Israel and the military career of all the founders stands out, since in Israel military service is compulsory for men and women from 18 to 21 years old.
Therefore, during the presentation “F35- THE FUTURE OF DEFENSE CONNECTIVITY” by Erin Moseley, VP at Lockheed Martin, he wanted to show the importance they are giving to cyber security, as their military systems are increasingly connected, demonstrating the security of the F35 as a fighter plane. The IAI (Israel Aerospace Industries), on the other hand, has presented a system both for protection from drones and for use as a means of rescue in hostile environments. With respect to startups, solutions for OT environments such as industrial network monitoring systems, easily installed hardware protection systems, such as data diodes that allow the flow of information in a critical network to be unidirectional, stand out.
Once again, Inprosec and InprOTech are attending one of the world’s largest cybersecurity events, to increase our capabilities and update first-hand our knowledge and developments in the sector.
