The German-Israeli Cyber Conference

Sharks in Cyberspace: Protection from the Feeding Frenzy

On July 14 took place the new edition of our “Innovation in Cybersecurity” conference series. Together with the Embassy of Israel in Germany and the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, we teamed up German and Israeli scientists, policy and business decision makers in a unique format. Top level speakers from academia, industry and government in Israel and Germany shared their views on innovation in cybersecurity. 

From research to innovation

Cyberspace is a shark tank. Who are the sharks? How can academic research be transformed into powerful innovations? Which insights lead to the invention of tools that serve to protect privacy, industrial knowledge, integrity of the economy and stability of democracy? How can predators be prevented from attacking bank accounts, industries' data banks and systems crucial to their very functioning?

From innovation to market

Which state-of-the art tools are there for software and networks to deploy higher integrity systems? Which vulnerabilities grow with digitalization across industries, home offices and customer relations?
