Cybertech is the most significant conference and exhibition of cyber technologies outside of the United States. It took place at the Tel Aviv Convention Center from January 30 to February 1 and brought together leading multinational corporations, start-ups, venture-capital firms and clients.
According to organizers, the conference “provides a unique platform for discussion about the latest cyber-related technological developments through panel discussions, such as challenges and solutions for the cyber industry, international collaboration between law enforcement authorities around the world, cognitive computing issues and the future of cybersecurity for the fintech industry.”
Cisco CEO Chuck Robbins, in Israel for the first time, gave the keynote address at the conference.
“Things are moving faster than anyone realizes,” he said. “We are currently undergoing the most significant and fastest technological change we have ever experienced and will probably ever experience in our lifetime.”
Robbins welcomed all of Cisco’s employees, customers and partners. He encouraged them to take the time to view the company’s special display that told the story of Cisco Israel’s creation and developments over the last 20 years.
The company has developed dozens of devices, patented hundreds of ideas and invested more than NIS 7 billion in Israeli companies, including NDS, Cloudlock and Leaba.
