Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) said Sunday that it will participate in the Cybertech Global conference and exhibition in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, from April 5-7. Throughout the event, the company said, IAI will focus on promoting communication and local cooperation with local government agencies, defense forces, local industries and academic initiatives, in order to further expand the company’s activity in the region. Cybertech Global is the largest networking event for the cyber industry outside of the U.S.
IAI's participation in Cybertech is a direct result of the Abraham Accords between Israel and the UAE. IAI has also signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the UAE's Group 42 to fight against COVID-19, as well as with the UAE's EDGE Defense to cooperate on producing defense solutions for the region.
IAI is the leader of IC3, the Israeli Cyber Companies Consortium, and IAC3, the Israeli Aviation Cyber Companies Consortium, both of which were established under the auspices of Israel's Ministry of Economy. The consortia were established to create comprehensive holistic cyber solutions for national defense as well as for commercial aviation. IAI is a global leader and has ample operational experience in the development and implementation of national cybersecurity organizations.
Boaz Levy, IAI's President and CEO, said: "IAI delivers solutions in the cyber domain to customers worldwide in addition to our vast portfolio in space, air, land sea and HLS. Over the past year throughout the COVID-19 crisis, in particular, we saw increased demand for cyber security solutions, for enterprises, critical infrastructures, governments and nation states. IAI is proud to participate in Cybertech in Dubai, and showcase our cybersecurity products and solutions, for national level cyber resilience. We are developing unique and advanced cyber solutions for intelligence, monitoring, identification and accessibility. IAI sees Cybertech as an opportunity to share our knowledge, best practices and solutions, and strive together for a safer and cyber secure world."
