The Annual Youth Cyber Conference is a joint initiative of the Blavatnik Interdisciplinary Cyber Research Center (ICRC) at Tel Aviv University and the Cyber Education Center (CEC).

The Cyber Education Center was founded by the Rashi Foundation and the Ministry of Defense in 2010 to promote equal opportunities for youth from the geographical and social periphery of Israel. CEC develops and operates a variety of education programs for technological excellence, providing teenagers with the relevant skills and knowledge to enable them to choose a tech oriented military service, and continue to tech academic studies followed by a significant career in Israel’s hi-tech industry.

The event is expected to bring together about 600 talented youth, tomorrow’s cyber and tech leaders and students of cyber and science studies for the eighth year, to be enriched and inspired by innovative and fascinating sessions held by leading cyber experts in Israel.

This event will be held in Hebrew for an invited audience only.
