Addressing growing cyber threats against American and global business is a top priority for C-suite executives and boards of major American companies. This is a global challenge that transcends borders and requires effective collaboration – at the operational level – between governments and businesses. This business mission build and strengthened alliances and partnerships in Israel across the world with like-minded people who understand the nature of these threats and who share our commitment to work together to counter them.
