BEVERLY HILLS—On Thursday, June 30, CyberTech, the organizer of Israel’s largest cybersecurity conference, will hold its first event in Beverly Hills at the Wallis Annenberg Theater.

According to the press release from the Consulate General Israel of Los Angeles, the event is a one day gathering that brings together industry professionals, decision makers, start-ups and investors.
This event was sprung forth from an agreement signed in 2014 by California Governor Edmund Brown and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. This allows the city of Beverly Hills and Israeli to collaborate and work on projects and research together.
Amir Rappaport, the chief executive officer of Cybertech, explained the reasoning behind why the conference is needed. He indicated that “in the face of new threats we encounter daily, individuals, organizations and states are required to produce innovative, unique solutions to strengthen the resilience of sensitive communication systems they rely on every day.”
Rappaport further indicated that “for this purpose, it is essential to be aware of the latest developments in the cyber defense market.”
Conference attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the latest innovations and solutions presented by the international cyber community. According to the conference’s website, there will be a focus on networking, strengthening alliances and forming new connections. There will also be an exhibition showing innovative technologies, meetings with leading start-ups and investors.
