Communications in the Cyber Era

In the past decade, IoT has revolutionized the communications industry and it will continue to do so in the coming years, with the projection of an average of 6-7 connected devices per person by 2020. The rise of 5G is expected to lead to more sophisticated devices and a wider range of services, drastically changing the reach of IoT and fundamentally changing the communications industry.  The 5G revolution makes cybersecurity more relevant to communications than ever. 

This special event, "Communications in the Cyber Era," will explore compliance with new 5G regulations and protocols, as well as the cyber threats and opportunities that come with it. The event will discuss international collaboration using real-world case studies and examples of cyber incidents as a backdrop and present the partnership between the Israeli Ministry of Communications and the Israeli National Cyber Directorate. 

This special event will be led by Director General Netanel (Nati) Cohen of the Israel Ministry of Communications and will include government officials from around the world, leading decision-makers, and a wide range of experts from the technology and innovation ecosystem.
