The conference is an attempt to advance one of the fields Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has pegged as an area of potential economic growth for Israel.

On Sunday, Netanyahu told visiting OECD Sec.-Gen. Angel Guria that Israel is trying “to turn Beersheva into a global cyber capital, which will enable many investors and companies from the private sector to come to Israel.”

The conference, to take place on January 27-28 at the Tel Aviv Exhibition Grounds, has already secured participation from executives from major companies including IBM, Kaspersky, Check Point and EMC.
