Upcoming Event:

JHTC and RWiT Present: Cybersecurity: What Now, What Next?

Major cyberattacks seem to be daily headline news. Everything from multimillion dollar ransoms demanded for the release of public and private infrastructure to the theft and use of the personal details of pretty much everyone on earth. Should we be alarmed? How can we best protect ourselves and our companies? How do we know if we are a victim? How should we respond to threats? Will we ever sleep peacefully again?

Direct from Israel, come hear a panel of experts discuss these and other important and timely cybersecurity questions in a free virtual event.

Expect to leave with a better understanding of the potential dangers associated with cybersecurity and the best practices for avoiding and minimizing your exposure and better preparing you and your company for the future. In addition, you should get a good grasp of the cybersecurity landscape, where there are employment opportunities and what skills are needed for success.

The cybersecurity panel will be composed of the following experts:
