About this talk

Israel, a country of 9 million people, created 300+ cybersecurity startups, exporting billions worth of cybersecurity products every year and convincing more than 30 multinationals to open local R&D centers. Why and how did this become possible? In this talk Michael Kenney, Vice President; Strategy & Corporate Development at Ingram Micro Cloud will interview Nir Gaist, Founder and CTO of Nyotron, an Israeli-born endpoint security startup. In 2018, Ingram Micro Cloud partnered with MassChallenge to launch the Comet Competition - an annual challenge to discover the world’s most talented B2B ISVs. Not surprisingly, a number of Comet's winners come from Israel. Speaker: Nir Gaist, Founder and CTO of Nyotron, is a recognized information security expert and ethical hacker. He started programming at age 6 and began his studies at the Israeli Technion University at age 10. Nir has worked with some of the largest Israeli organizations, such as the Israeli Police, the Israeli parliament and Microsoft’s Israeli headquarters. He also wrote the cybersecurity curriculum for the Israel Ministry of Education. Nir holds patents for the creation of a programming language called Behavior Pattern Mapping (BPM) that enables monitoring of the integrity of the operating system behavior to deliver threat-agnostic protection. Moderator: Michael Kenney, Vice President; Strategy & Corporate Development at Ingram Micro Cloud. Michael leads M&A and investment strategy for Ingram Micro - world's largest distributor of information technology products serving more than 200,000 customers in approximately 160 countries.
