Please join us for an opportunity to meet a select group of innovative Israeli cybersecurity technology companies that are exploring business opportunities in the United States. Israel is a global leader in developing innovative cybersecurity solutions to combat terror and crime. The country's extensive experience in fighting terror, combined with cutting-edge high tech capabilities, has prompted dozens of companies to develop novel products, systems and services

The delegation is organized by the commercial section of the Israeli Embassy and the BIRD Foundation, an acronym for Israel-U.S. Binational Industrial Research and Development.
