This week the University of Tel Aviv will be the host of Cyber Week 2019 or, as I like to call it, the E3 of cybersecurity. The event will bring together the very best that online security has to offer – speakers, events, workshops, and more.
For those of you who are interested in hearing all about AI, hackers, malware, and B2B cyber deployment, Cyber Week will begin on the 22nd of June and end of the 27th.
Register now to get front-row tickets to the most important gathering of this kind. Do bear in mind that some of the events are for early birds only.
Should I bother going to Cyber Week 2019 if I’m not into cybersecurity?
Yes, you should. You see, with the advent of IoT and AI, online security is no longer a whim, but a must-have for both business and non-business people. Of course, one would be tempted into saying that “hey, I’m not a big company. Why should someone want to “kidnap” my personal data and hold it for ransom?”
Well, I’ve got some news for you – hackers have a non-discriminatory policy, which means that, given the opportunity, they will most certainly go in for the kill. That would be reason number one.
As for number two, tech events such as Tel Aviv’s Cyber Week 2019 are meant to prove that things like cybersecurity are what fashion describes as ‘geek chic’ – a bit on the geeky side, but cool and fresh, nonetheless.
Now that’s out of the way, let’s take a look at what Cyber Week 2019 has to offer.
Cloud Security Workshop – Sunday, June the 23rd from 08:00 till 18:00
The opening event is Moshe Ferber’s “Cloud Security Workshop,” an eye-opener for those who want to all there is to know about cloud security, firewalls, encryptions, private clouds, and security data in the public cloud.
This conference may be a bit pricy ($1,100). Good news – that money will get you a treasure trove of cloud security knowledge and two vouchers for your upcoming CCSK Exam.
From GDPR to CCPA
If you’re eager to learn all about the transition from GDPR to California’s latest Consumer Privacy Act, you shouldn’t miss this event. It will take place in Tel Aviv University’s Naftali Building on the 24th of June from 08:30 to 15:30.
The introduction will be held by Kenneth A. Bamberger, a University of California Professor of law. Up next will be the GDPR to CCPA conference, held by Boris Segalis, Cedric Burton, and Gabriela Zanfir-Fortuna.
Want to become a cyber detective? Say no more; just hit the ‘register’ button, and you’re on your way to giving online crime a swift punch in the mouth.
The event will be held by Uri Rivner, BioCatch’s Chief Cyber Officer and Co-Founder, Daniel T. Cohen of the RSA Fraud and Risk Intelligence and RSA Israel Site Lead, and the esteemed Nadav Katzenell, the Head of Machine Learning of Data & Research Group, IBM Trusteer.
Should you attend Cyber Week 2019?
Yes; it’s an eye-opener for more reasons than one could count.
