The Israel Directors' Union announced this week the establishment of a committee of experts on cyber affairs, as well as cooperation with local company Consienta, at the annual conference to update directors that took place in cooperation with the Association for Publicly Traded Companies. As part of this cooperation, Consienta will conduct cyber simulations for directors and will participate in cyber and information security training carried out by the association.
In addition, Refael Franco, former deputy head of the Israel National Cyber Directorate, who recently launched the "Franco Group" for technology consulting and investment, announced that he has joined ConSienta's advisory board. Franco joined the National Cyber Directorate in 2015 after working for the Israel Security Agency's National Information Security Authority.
Franco stated, "I am pleased to join ConSienta as a member of the advisory board." He explained that Covid-19 had expedited the transition to accelerated digital activity, and that the soon-to-be-launched ConSienta platform may be the next big thing in the world of cyber awareness.
Guy Dagan, ConSienta's CEO, stated, "We are very pleased that Rafi has joined the company's advisory board. His extensive experience and knowledge will greatly contribute to the continuation of the company's position as a leading cyber awareness company in Israel, and to our continued development in overseas markets."
ConSienta provides education, training, and employee awareness programs. Together with the Israel Directors' Union, it has announced that it will offer a full range of cyber awareness training to senior business leaders from Israel and abroad.
