The AICC has been a such welcoming experience for me. I met some great people and developed new business relationships. My special thanks to Michael Schmitt, the Executive Director and his team for the support and the positive impact on my company which exceeded my expectations!

General Gal Hirsch's presentation on Cyber Warfare was extremely informative and eye-opening....He clearly articulated and defined the new dangers that the business world confronts, from hacking to identity theft to ransomware....It was also an honor to meet someone who dedicated their life to the security of Israel.
