The Israel Cyber Security Summit was held in Taipei on Sept. 27, 2018, with the aim of fostering closer bilateral cybersecurity exchanges and cooperation between Taiwan and Israel and enhancing their respective capabilities in this sector. The event was jointly organized by the Ministry of Economic Affairs' Department of International Cooperation (ICD) along with the Israel Economic and Cultural Office in Taipei, Taiwan Nextgen Foundation and Taiwan-Israel Information Security and Technology Association Provisional Office.

In her opening remarks, ICD Director General Cynthia Kiang pointed out that Taiwan and Israel share many complementarities and opportunities for cooperation in the technology sector. Noting that Israel is a global leader in the cybersecurity sector while Taiwan ranks among the tops in the world in innovative technology and industrial capacity, Director Kiang stated that if the two sides can link Taiwan's technology manufacturing capabilities with Israel's international research capacity and establish an innovative cybersecurity R&D base, this will help them tap their synergies most effectively.

Head of the Israel Economic and Trade Mission, Tslil Lahav, also spoke at the summit, introducing the Israel HLS & Cyber 2018 scheduled to be held in Tel Aviv Nov. 12-15. The upcoming conference will focus on the theme of homeland security and virtual network security, while the accompanying exhibition will feature some of the latest technologies in the sector, including applications in border control, aviation and shipping security, fintech, and so on. He added that it is worthwhile for related Taiwan government agencies and enterprises to attend the event for exchanges and potential collaborative endeavors.

Among the participants in the Summit were Ching-Hao Mao, Head of the Cybersecurity Technology Institute under the Institute for Information Technology, Kuan-Ting Chen, Representative at the Taiwan-Israel Information Security and Technology Association Provisional Office.

Also attending the event were experts from several leading Israeli information security companies such as Radware, Check Point, Votiro, CyberArk and Verint. They shared their insights and presented a range of advanced cybersecurity solutions, innovative technologies and products that won accolades from the participating Taiwan information security specialists.

Israel is a leader in cybersecurity, attracting roughly 20 percent of total international private investment in the sector in 2017. Israeli companies' share of global cybersecurity software sales was over 10 percent for the year. Israel's network security-, national security- and critical infrastructure-related cybersecurity technology is cutting-edge, and the country is home to world-class talent and academic and research institutes, so it is an ideal partner for Taiwan in the island's efforts to build up its cybersecurity industry and capabilities.
