Cybersecurity “Securing Critical Infrastructure”

















Israel produces some of the world’s most coveted cyber defense solutions in protecting critical infrastructure. The prosperity and safety of the United States and Israel depends on the security of our nations’ critical infrastructure; electricity grids, fuel processing centers, airports, seaports, and nuclear plants.


Texas has many of the nation’s most important critical infrastructure sites within its borders and as such is in a  prime position to benefit from and highlight US-Israel cybersecurity coordination and partnership.

The Texas-Israel Cyber Security Conference "Securing Our Critical Infrastructure"  takes place in Dallas (at the Mack Ballroom at SMU) with a full program from 9am - 5:30pm followed by a cocktail reception until 6:30pm. Registered guests only.


Our conference will showcase how Texas represents varied cybersecurity needs in the United States and will be chaired by Doug Deason.

Security in the 21st century is not limited to military exercises and missile defense systems. The rapid expansion of cybersecurity threats to both countries has made the development and implementation of cybersecurity defense systems a touchstone of the US-Israel security relationship.
