About

Once again, Cyber Week is proud to present an event focused on sharing approaches for capacity building and building digital resilience. There is much to learn from existing projects and initiatives but we want to focus the discussion on bridging the implementation gap – how to make sure the work really makes an impact. Hear from leading lights in the community from multinational development agencies, country and project leads in this area and join the discussion on what should be done in order to achieve the desired results.

Tel Aviv University (TAU) is keen to continue the thought leadership in this area as part of it’s own work contributing to the world of cyber capability development, building on the Progress Methodology developed at TAU and the Regional Cyber Resilience Lab.
