The Israel Trade Commission is proud to be bringing Professor Isaac Ben-Israel to Australia on the 9 -12 March, 2016 as part of our on-going focus on Cyber Security.

He was appointed by the Prime Minister of Israel to lead a task force that formulated Israel national Cyber policy. Following that, he founded the National Cyber Headquarters in the PM Office.  In 2014 he was appointed again by the Prime Minister to lead another task force which resulted in a government decision to set up a new Notional Cyber Authority.
