About the event

While attending risks involved with global data protection challenges, such as the GDPR and the CCPA, local and foreign corporations acknowledge that doing business in Israel require special attention to the local law as well.

Our privacy pros’ forum annual event is focused on the crossroads of privacy regulation and cyber security.

This time, we will focus on the new Cyber Security Bill which creates substantial concerns over the Israeli government’s ability to access private-owned information systems without court orders.

We will also hold a professionals’ panel about practical challenges in complying with the data security regulations. It has been a year since the regulations took effect and created a massive impact on the Israeli market.
