For a Safer World

Cyber attacks around the world are accelerating the need for groundbreaking innovation that can be implemented swiftly in the defense and security industries.

It is jointly managed with our close partners and industry experts HLS Tech, which is led by Col. (Res.) David Rokach and Erik Kerten.
