CyberWeek 2017 came to Tel Aviv last week, and Unbound (formerly known as Dyadic) was a proud sponsor and host of many exciting events throughout the week. Sponsoring this major event this year was indeed an important milestone for Unbound allowing us to WOW the industry with our virtual HSM concept. And indeed, the industry stopped by our booth asking us, “What is an HSM born for the cloud?” and “Wait… Isn’t the H in HSM for Hardware? So isn’t a software hardware security module an oxymoron?”
What makes CyberWeek so unique?
CyberWeek is an annual cybersecurity conference held for the seventh year in a row at Tel Aviv University and attended by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Delegations arrive from across the globe, bringing together the world’s leading cyber security experts, industry leaders, innovators, academics, and other government officials for an important week for idea sharing, provocative discussions, learning, and networking.

Co-Hosting a Networking Reception with UK Israel Tech Hub and Barclay’s RISE
After a week of keynotes, sessions, roundtables, and 1:1 events, sometimes you just need to relax a bit with a drink while gazing at the Med. We were delighted to provide a few hundred Cyber Week delegates with just that opportunity, as we co-hosted a networking reception on the lovely rooftop of Barclay’s Rise in Tel Aviv in association with the UK-Israel Tech Hub. We hosted guests from Israel, UK and even more countries for an enjoyable evening among friends and colleagues.
