Cocktails with Isaac Ben-Israel:
Cyber-Security in an Insecure World

Almost 40 guests gathered at the beautiful Miami Beach home of Erika and Stuart Browning to meet and hear from Prof. Isaac (Itzik) Ben-Israel on cyber-security. Prof. Ben-Israel is the recognized leader in Israel regarding cyber-security and head of the Blavatnik Interdisciplinary Cyber Research Center at TAU. He is also chairman of the Israel Space Agency.

Prof. Ben-Israel spoke about how there is both a positive side and a negative side to technology, and cyber-security tries to keep ahead of the dark side. He described his own professional journey, starting with the military in Israel and then seamlessly going back and forth from military service to academia and business. Among his many noted accomplishments, he finished his service in the IDF with the rank of general, where he served as the head of the military administration for the Development of Weapons and the Technological Industry.

Stuart Browning said that he was happy to host this evening because it was a way for him to meld two of his passions, Israel and technology. Ike Fisher, AFTAU National Board Member, thanked our hosts and their guests. "Being involved with TAU is a great way to support Israel today and in the future," he said.
