“And Hashem said: ‘Behold, they are one people, and they have all one language; and this is what they begin to do; and now nothing will be withholden from them, which they purpose to do.'” Genesis 11:6 (The Israel Bible™)
On November 14-17, 2016, thousands of politicians, law enforcement decision-makers and security professionals from around the world will gather at the Tel Aviv Convention Center to attend “Israel HLS & Cyber 2016.” The conference will focus on today’s most imminent security challenges, such as the threats of both physical and cyber terror, securing airports and major transport hubs, and protecting critical infrastructure.
Complementing these important discussions, the Exhibition will run simultaneously and showcase 160 Israeli companies, offering some of the world’s most innovative and advanced technologies in the field.
Years of heightened terrorist threats have led many governments to expand their security measures. Now, more than ever, greater attention is given to protect strategic assets, such as transportation hubs, stadiums and sports facilities, and critical infrastructure.
Faced with a multitude of terrorist threats since its inception, Israel has encouraged and supported the development and implementations of state-of-the-art homeland security solutions. Today, Israel is home to more than 400 companies in this sector and is widely considered to be in the forefront of the global security industry.
In recent years, Israel has also become a leading cyber nation. In 2015, the Israeli cyber sector reached $4 billion in total sales, representing 5 percent of that year’s global sales in this sector. More than 300 cyber companies operate in Israel, and the number is growing every year.
