Spazio-News, a privileged observer, interviewed Amir Rapaport, founder of Cybertech in order to understand how the world of Cyber changes and which technological challenges, civil and military, will be faced.
Amir Rapaport, founder of Cybertech Europe , how did Cybertech come about and how are you preparing for the Italian edition?
Cybertech started in 2014 in Tel-Aviv. It is one of the largest cyber security events outside of the US. Since 2015, we’ve organized events all over the world, Europe, Tokyo, the United States, Singapore, and more. We’ve grown into global events.
We’ve organized successful events in North America, South America and Asia. This upcoming year we are looking forward to expanding to Africa in Rwanda in 2020.
Why the event is important and what should we expect for this edition?
Cyber security is top of mind for everyone in Europe, from governmental institutions to industries like finance where there are great amounts of sensitive data. Cybertech will serve as a forum for dialogue on all of the latests cyber security issues. Experts agree that 2019 will be the year of e-crime, with attacks not only growing in frequency, but becoming increasingly personal as well as increasingly silent. Today, everything is digital. Everyone is affected by cyber, on a personal and business level. Our goal is to spread awareness.
The technology is definitely a crucial factor to enforce the Cyber security, what are the solutions presented by companies?
Of the many exhibitors at Cybertech Europe, attendees can visit the FireEye booth to learn more about their unique innovation cycle that combines technology with expertise to continuously improve solutions at a speed and sophistication unmatched in the industry.
How about new geo-political scenarios and how Cybertech 2019 can support the development of new technologies?
The question really strikes at the core of what Cybertech is all about, a platform to explore new technologies and to discuss global threats and counter solutions.
At the end of the day, all threats are global in nature, a cybersecurity issue for an SMB in Italy is a problem at the European level and at the global level, as well. For example, cybercrime is rarely local. Cybertech will be the place to discuss these cross-border issues, to consult with experts and explore new, innovative technologies countering these threats.
Finally, could you please provide us an advice for who plans to attend this event?
