The forum will be held under the auspices of the Institute for National Security Studies, a prestigious Tel Aviv think tank headed by former Military Intelligence Director Maj. Gen. (ret.) Amos Yadlin. It will focus on the ways government can prevent and counter strategic cyber attacks.
The Prime Minister’s Office National Cyber Bureau, the Intelligence Ministry and the Office of the Chief Scientist are actively involved in the organization of this conference, as is the Cyber Security Forum Initiative, a nonprofit organization headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska and in Washington, D.C.
The conference will include panels on a range on issues, with experts discussing ways governments, financial markets, and corporations can deal with the threat posed by cyberterrorism. Other issues include cyber operations, cyberintelligence, new defense technologies, legislation and regulation to protect cyberspace, national policy and strategy, cybercrime and cyberterrorism, as well as cyber defense law.
The list of speakers includes Intelligence, Strategic Affairs, and International Relations Minister Yuval Steinitz and U.S. European Command Intelligence Director Rear Admiral Norman Hayes.
“The conference aims to contribute to an informed public debate on cyber-net security and to promote international collaborations in the technological, legal, and policymaking domains,” the organizers say on the conference’s website.
