The annual France Israel Cyber Security Forum has for the past eight years tackled new security challenges from both technical and managerial standpoints. Among the guest speakers we have presented are the presidents of EADS, BNP Paribas and Schneider Electric. A full third of companies on the Paris stock market CAC-40 index have already participated in the Cyber security Forum. Elite figures in Israeli technology have been able to meet with major French CISOs every year to exchange work experience and launch new projects. Around 1000 one-to-one meetings organized since 2006 have led to a hundreds of partnership, distribution and integration agreements. The entire value chain concerning the security of information systems is covered, from critical infrastructure to applications, networks, work stations and cloud computing. Generally, the heads of some 10 Israeli companies, plus several Europeans, make the trip to Paris every year. They include multinational giants such as Israel Aerospace Industries, established leaders such as Checkpoint, Cyber-Ark, Audiocodes, Imperva, and also start-ups from Israel’s Silicon Valley.
After eight years of activity, the Cyber Security Forum co-organized by MIW and Dominique Bourra, has proven to be the « must attend » gathering of French and Israeli security experts. 12 Israeli companies will be represented this year and take part to more than 100 one to one business meetings in the afternoon with French CISOs of large groups, integrators and distributors.
