For the past three decades, the State of Israel, “The Start-Up Nation,” has maintained its position as a leading powerhouse for cyber security innovation. We invite you to join us as we examine the world of cyber warfare, security threats, the Internet of Things, and Cloud Computing as well as the fundamental technologies of cyber security systems, including: Block Chain; Cryptology; Hash Function; Crypto-Techniques; Asymmetric Encryption; and much more.
Our students enrolled in the Cyber Security program also have the unique opportunity to participate in “Cyber Week” which is an annual leading international conference in cybersecurity held at Tel Aviv University. Cyber Week 2018 will occur the week prior to our program start date. The conference offers a unique gathering of cybersecurity experts, bringing together industry leaders, startups, investors, academics, diplomats, and other government officials. Delivering a thought-provoking exchange of knowledge, methods, and ideas, the events of the conference will include roundtables, panels, workshops, forums, BSides, competitions, and more. In the past, Cyber Week has hosted over 5,000 attendees from more than 50 countries. The conference is hosted by the Blavatnik Interdisciplinary Cyber Research Center (ICRC), The Yuval Ne’eman Workshop for Science, Technology and Security, Tel Aviv University, the Israeli National Cyber Directorate under the Prime Minister’s Office and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
