Vancouver - Thursday, May 1st, 2014
When Professor Yuval Elovici took the stage in Vancouver BC a silence fell over the JCC's Wosk Auditorium. It was clear to those present that what they had feared was already true-nothing it seemed was safe any longer. There was a new reality to which each and every one of us had to understand and adapt.
A cross section of people filled the audience. From tech types and angel investors to startup artists and passionate community members - everyone was captivated by the discoveries, breakthroughs and advances being made at Ben-Gurion University and through its central role in Israel's new cyber strategy.
Canadian Associates of Ben-Gurion University- British Columbia Region's first Kindle Your Imagination lecture was opened by event co-chair Nechemia Cohen, and BGU Professor Elovici was introduced by special guest Eric Winsborrow, President and CEO of Shadow Networks. Eric spoke about how quickly internet attacks have become more commonplace and substantially more serious. Elovici's enlightening and spell binding presentation was followed by a lively Q&A moderated by Dr. Paul Terry, CEO and President of PHEMI Health Systems. Event Co-chair, Shuli Gortler, thanked the speakers and invited the more than 80 participants to network and enjoy the sweets.
