Cyber security the key in Victoria’s ministerial trade mission to Israel

The Victorian Minister for Small Business, Innovation and Trade, Philip Dalidakis, is set to lead the first ministerial trade mission to Israel focused on cyber security as the state looks to bolster its reputation as the premier information security hub in the Asia-Pacific ­region.

The data and cyber security trade mission, developed in conjunction with the Australia-Israel Chamber of Commerce, will see Mr Dalidakis lead a delegation of Victorian companies and representatives from national organisations to attend Israel’s 4th International Conference on Homeland Security and Cyber.

“We have over 30 companies represented in this mission and I am happy to say that we have even had some companies from NSW ask if they could join the mission,” Mr Dalidakis told The Australian.

He said the mission was the latest step in the state government’s aspiration to put Victoria on the global map when it comes to ­cybersecurity.
