Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani to Visit Ben-Gurion University of the Negev as New Global Chairman of Greenberg Traurig Cyber Security Practice


BEER-SHEVA, Israel, March 13, 2016 – Former New York City Mayor Rudolph Giuliani will meet with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before attending a series of briefings with Israel’s top cyber security researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) on Tuesday, March 15.

As mayor of New York City from 1994 to 2001, Giuliani is credited with reducing crime and handling the aftermath of the 9/11 terror attacks on the World Trade Center. Following that, he founded Giuliani Partners, a security consulting firm.

At BGU on Tuesday, he will visit with experts from the University’s Cyber Security Research Center and Deutsche Telekom Innovation [email protected], and with the president of the University, Prof. Rivka Carmi. He will also deliver a speech to students on “The International Aspects of the Cyber Threat.”
Giuliani will also be meeting with Prof. Dan Blumberg, BGU vice president and dean for research and development and director of BGU’s Homeland Security Institute; Prof. Bracha Shapira, Deutsche Telekom Innovation [email protected] and Cyber Security Research Center; Yoav Tzruya, partner and head, JVP Cyber Labs; and Dr. Nimrod Kozlovski, venture partner, JVP Cyber Labs.

Giuliani is visiting BGU in part on the recommendation of his partner at Greenberg Traurig, Shira Yoshor. She is on the board of American Associates, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev Greater Texas Region.
