CSFI American Delegation to Israel 2022

CSFI in conjunction with the Economic and Trade Mission of the Embassy of Israel recently took a delegation of senior U.S. cyber executives to Cybertech, Israel’s leading global cyber conference.

The objective of the delegation was to expose attendees to a broad overview of the Israeli cyber ecosystem, including startups, VCs, incubators, academia, and Government - all of which combine to make the Israeli cyber ecosystem among the unique in the world.

The delegation also enjoyed the opportunity to attend a variety of networking events and also received the opportunity to meet with a curated list of world-class cyber startups. Attendees emerged from the week with some great connections, and CSFI believes some serious business opportunities may emerge from these engagements. And to top it all off, we even spent a day touring the Old City of Jerusalem.

The response of the CSFI delegates was so positive that we anticipate making Cybertech a yearly calendar item on the CSFI schedule.

Testimonial for CSFI for the US Delegation to CybeTech Tel Aviv 2022
“I was honored to be invited to participate in the US Delegation the Cyber Security Forum Initiative, (CFSI) assembled in conjunction with the Israeli Embassy in Washington DC to attend the CyberTech Tel Aviv exposition and corresponding educational and networking events. Paul orchestrated a phenomenal week of high-level meetings, company introductions and demonstrations, and networking events that brought together the entire ecosystem of Israeli cyber, (start-ups, investors, accelerators, and established, growing companies). From start to finish, our week was jam-packed with extremely valuable activities, some business-related, some educational, but all very beneficial and amongst a large group of like-minded, friendly cyber professionals. Paul is clearly a known, named professional throughout the Israeli cyber community and it was truly a pleasure to accompany him and the other delegates on this endeavor. Thanks, Paul, I continue to benefit from your guidance and mentorship and look forward to joining you and CFSI again next year.” - Terry DiVittorio, Founder & CEO Cade Strategic Consulting
