For the past three decades, the State of Israel, “The Start-Up Nation,” has maintained its position as a leading powerhouse for cyber security innovation. It has been providing novel solutions which have enhanced the robustness, resilience, and security of other nations and organizations around the world, making a global impact that is non-proportional to Israel’s material size. As of today, Israeli solutions are more prevalent than ever before, protecting billions of people, sustaining the continuous supply of vital services, safeguarding governments and economic infrastructures, and ensuring the security and safety of businesses and individuals across the globe.

The Israeli cyber security industry – relying on its skilled and creative human capital, and empowered by long-standing government support and a unique synergy with the world-renowned Israeli academia – has been a key component of the local vibrant security-oriented “ecosystem”: a prosperous ground where cyber security exceptionalism and excellence can grow and thrive. As such, Israel serves as a global incubator for corporations and individual entrepreneurs alike: those that seek to tap into and embrace Israel’s unique culture, which cultivates entrepreneurship, fosters ingenuity, and celebrates the audacity to undermine conventional thinking.

Looking forward, the Israeli cyber security industry is well-positioned to properly mitigate, and even prevent, the threats of the future. This is a view shared by professionals, businessmen, and thought leaders worldwide, and is reflected in the steadfast and accelerated flow of venture capital funding into Israel’s cyber security industry (which amounted to approximately 15% of the global private investments in cyber security last year), which is fueling the next-generation of Israeli innovation. Thus, it comes as no surprise that a growing number of prominent multinational corporations have decided to actively and continuously engage in this ecosystem, by establishing their own dedicated cyber security R&D, Innovation, and Excellence Centers within Israel.

The Israel Export & International Cooperation Institute’s (IEICI) Cyber Security Unit represents more than 250 Israeli companies in the cyber security field, and works tediously to maximize the effectiveness of their business engagements with foreign counterparts, as well as in foreign markets. The unit exposes Israeli capabilities and innovative cyber security solutions to potential foreign clients and partners, either as stand-alone solutions or as an overarching tailor-made suite of solutions, accommodating their specific short and long term needs. To that end, the unit, which plays a key role in the Israeli ecosystem and is well-acquainted with the needs of the local cyber industry, holds the most comprehensive and up-to-date database of Israeli-based cyber security companies. The unit is a joint venture of IEICI and its major  governmental partners, the Foreign Administration at the Ministry of Economy and the Israel National Cyber Directorate in the Prime Minister’s Office, leveraging their expertise and national assets in order to achieve the unit’s and the industry’s objectives.

The unit is utilizing IEICI’s wide and global network of partnerships with foreign counterparts, from the public and private sectors alike, and is constantly exploring new avenues of cooperation with its existing partners. Additionally, the unit is looking to expand its network and forge new productive partnerships with foreign governments and organizations, in order to generate substantial business value both for its Israeli members and for its foreign counterparts and partners.
