MDC's Idea Center, Tel Aviv University hosting daylong CyberMiami tech conference

 The Idea Center at Miami Dade College (MDC), in collaboration with Tel Aviv University, will host CyberMiami, a one-day technology conference featuring cybersecurity experts from business, education, and intelligence fields on Thursday, Sept. 29, at 9 a.m. at MDC's Wolfson Campus in downtown Miami.

The conference will connect the business ecosystem of the Latin American market with top entrepreneurs from the U.S. and Israel, where there are currently more than 400 cybersecurity companies in operation.

“We live in an increasingly risky world, from private information, personal banking and government infrastructure,” said Leandro Finol, executive director of the Idea Center.  “Cyber risk should be at the top of the agenda of both executives and the general public.  CyberMiami is a forum where we are bringing top cybersecurity leaders to discuss the most relevant issues of today and tomorrow.”

Attendees at CyberMiami will learn from cybersecurity industry leaders about defending and protecting their organization against imminent cyber-attacks in order to prevent data breaches. The conference will include discussions about cyber threats as well as an exhibition of cybersecurity technologies.

The lineup of guest speakers at CyberMiami includes: Hadar Blutrich, CEO of Source Defence; Inon Elroy, Economic Minister of North America; Sam Friedman, director of sales of Cyberbit; David Gladshtein, director of business at Minerva Labs; Avital Grushcovski, V.P Product of Source Defence; Yasmin Hami, business development manager of Votiro; Greg Lenox director of sales of Secdo; Derek Schwartz, CEO North America of Safe-T; and Shay Zandani, CEO of Cytegic.
