Just last week PassCamp team has returned from one of the most influential cyber security conferences worldwide — CyberTech Tel Aviv.
The event took place in Israel — a truly marvelous country, that’s also crazy about technology and innovation. Even though the State of Israel has been established as an independent state pretty recently (1948), from day one they were very strongly focused on innovations, technologies and scientific breakthroughs. With loads of companies — from global leaders like General Motors or Google, to 1,000 new startups founded in Israel yearly, Israel has been truly established as a hub for innovation. That is exactly why flash-drives and antivirus software were invented in Israel. Same as the first concepts of autonomous vehicles and hundreds of other technologies, upcoming or already present in our daily lives. So it’s no wonder why one of the largest Cyber conferences takes place in Tel Aviv.
CyberTech is the global cyber industry’s B2B networking platform. It features events from all around the globe. Tokyo, Panama, Singapore, and Rome, just to name a few. After visiting CyberTech for the first time, we can strongly say that the event is a must-visit for anyone working in the Cyber industry.
Meetings, meetings, meetings
Another, less tangible take-away from conferences like CyberTech is feeling “the pulse” within the industry. As a human being, you’re preconditioned to notice patterns around you and industry-targeted events are no exception. At CyberTech it was very clear that all of the industry is experiencing radical changes that will soon transfer to the mass public. You must have noticed the shift in the industry as well, right? Everyone has started talking about Cyber Security and there are many reasons for that.
Last year was rich with widely discussed hacks and breaches, known to the general public — from still recent US election to Google, to countless others. The reality is that every year the number of cyber breaches increases and the time to act has come. “Head in the sand” technique is becoming less and less viable each day. With most of our valuable assets becoming digital — business-critical data, personal identity information, company details, bank accounts, client leads and contracts, cyber security is no longer a thing you can ignore. However, as we have told you before, simply purchasing few complex tools won’t solve your problems. Cyber tools must go hand-in-hand with educating your employees on the importance and instructions on how to actually use those tools.
At the very, very, very least, please secure your passwords.
