— Daniel Yomtobian is pleased to announce his support for US Security through AIPAC, The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a lobbying group formed by organization staff and citizen activists who work together to educate policy makers and US citizens about the state of Israel and pro-Israeli policies. As a bipartisan pro-Israel lobby, AIPAC urges members of the United States Congress to support Israel through a variety of methods, including government partnerships, foreign aid, and the promotion of a negotiated two-state solution. Yomtobian has worked with AIPAC to focus on the cooperation between the American and Israeli governments, and their commitment to issues like democracy and freedom. As the only fully democratic country in the Middle East, Israel has frequently been a fast-friend to the United States. Israel often collaborates with the United States to pursue terrorists, strengthen their respective militaries, and new forms of renewable energy generation. Yomtobian is also regularly involved with other pro-Israel organizations, such as Friends of Israel Defense Forces (FIDF), which supports both the education and well being of the Israeli Defense Force (IDF). A Lieutenant within the IDF has said that support of volunteers like Yomtobian "is a very important part of what we do. It means a lot knowing that there is someone who thinks about us, trusts us, and appreciates our contribution to defending the Jewish Homeland." He strongly encourages those to donate who wish to support FIDF or other similar organizations. A child of two immigrant parents, Daniel Yomtobian was born in California. His father immigrated to the United States from Iran, and his mother emigrated from Hungary. As a child, his family struggled to make ends meet. Yomtobian credits his own work ethic from watching his parents work hard to build a life in the states. He grew up working first in his father's business, and later in the community grocery store to help contribute to his family's household income. As a teenager, Yomtobian received his first computer as a gift from his mother. He began learning more about the Internet, and in 2009, he founded what would be his most successful venture yet, Advertise.com. The company offers digital, video, mobile, and remarketing traffic for businesses of all sizes. Advertise.com's mission is to help advertisers achieve their best ROI, and provide publishers with products that are both competitive and profitable. As an industry leader in online advertising, Daniel Yomtobian has received many awards and commendations for his work. In 2010, he was named one of San Fernando Valley Business Journal's Top 40 Under 40 Business Professionals. He was selected as 2012's Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst & Young, and was featured in the 2014 1st Quarter edition of C-Suite Quarterly. C-Suite Quarterly’s feature called Yomtobian a "young leader [who] will continue to play an important role in shaping the online world of tomorrow." Yomtobian remains committed to this vision, not just through his work at Advertise.com, and its innovating advertising technologies, but also through his charitable work with organizations like AIPAC and FIDF.

IRONSCALES, the first and only email security company to combine human intelligence with machine learning, today announced that it has won the Editor’s Choice Award for Best Messaging Security Solution from Cyber Defense Magazine, the industry's leading electronic information security magazine. IronTraps, IRONSCALES’ automatic phishing remediation email security solution, was chosen by a panel of leading independent information security experts after months of review. “Phishing remains the catalyst for more than 90 percent of all cyberattacks,” said Eyal Benishti, founder and CEO of IRONSCALES. “Our commitment is to make it exponentially more difficult for cyber criminals to exploit emails, SMS and social media using any type of complex phishing scheme. We’re thankful to Cyber Defense Magazine for validating our approach to solving one of the most complicated cybersecurity issues of our time.” IronTraps empowers employees to report suspicious emails with one-click on their toolbar in both Outlook and Gmail clients, subsequently triggering a real-time automated forensic review without requiring active SOC team participation. Within seconds, forensics is completed, and an intrusion signature is sent directly to both endpoints, email servers and the SIEM, which then triggers an immediate enterprise-wide automatic mitigation response, such as quarantines, disabling of links and attachments, and even permanent removal of email, reducing risk by protecting entire organizations from attack. The automated phishing response technology is also intelligent enough to analyze the maliciousness of a threat and remove it from all employee inboxes to prevent it from spreading – all of which alleviates the burden on the SOC team. With IronTraps, each time a malicious phishing or spear-phishing event is detected, the machine remembers it, preventing the same type of scam from ever successfully infiltrating another computer within the same network ever again. In January, IRONSCALES announced a new server-side remediation feature for IronTraps, enabling proactive inbox remediation in real-time and on any endpoint, even when a user is not logged in or online. “We’re thrilled to recognize next-generation innovation in the information security marketplace and that’s why IRONSCALES has earned this award from Cyber Defense Magazine. Some of the best INFOSEC defenses come from these kinds of forward thinking players who think outside of the box,” said Pierluigi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine. Demo IronTraps at RSA IRONSCALES is located in the Israeli delegation booth on General Floor - South Hall A-C, booths 827 & 833. Stop by for a demo of IronTraps and our new anti-spoofing tool for Microsoft Outlook,IronShield.

Its employee-based intrusion prevention system is the first phishing solution with an automatic one-click response, which expedites the time from phishing attack to remediation from weeks to seconds, without ever needing the SOC team's involvement. Headquartered in Raanana, Israel, IRONSCALES was founded by a team of security researchers, IT and penetration testing experts, as well as specialists in the field of effective interactive training, in response to the increasing phishing epidemic that today costs companies millions of dollars annually. It was incubated in the 8200 EISP, the top program for cyber security ventures, founded by alumni of the Israel Defense Forces’ elite Intelligence Technology unit.

Botnets are networks of malicious, remotely updatable code that covertly lurk on infected computers. Using botnets, which until now were largely untraceable, hackers and cyber criminals can carry out powerful attacks, spread viruses, generate spam, and commit other types of online crime. Deutsche Telekom Innovation Labs@BGU is an innovative research facility staffed by BGU faculty and student teams that conduct cutting-edge cyber security research. Led by BGU Prof. Bracha Shapira and Prof. Lior Roach, the team analyzed data captured by a "honeypot" network run by Deutsche Telekom, the worldwide telecommunications company. The team developed and implemented advanced algorithms to identify the botnet by finding similar attack patterns that can then be traced back to its administrator. They were able to identify six distinct botnets, each capable of inflicting serious criminal and monetary damage. Dudu Mimran, chief technology officer of Deutsche Telekom Innovation Labs@BGU, said, "This is the first time such a comprehensive study has been carried out and returned with unique findings. In addition, we were able to identify whether the attack emanated from a real person or from a robot and predict future attacks." In 2014, law enforcement agencies revealed that they had disrupted a Russian botnet that targeted personal bank accounts and stole $100 million. Ben-Gurion University of the Negev is the academic sponsor of CyberTech, Israel's largest cyber security event, organized by the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).

Background: P-wave dispersion (Pd) is an appealing marker for predicting the risk of developing atrial fibrillation. At present, no definitive cutoff value has been determined as to the diagnosis of high-risk patients. Our aims were to evaluate P-wave parameters of healthy subjects published in the literature, determine normal range and weighted means of Pd and P-wave parameters, and investigate the influences of gender, age, and BMI on the weighted results. Methods: A systematic search of studies published in PubMed was conducted. Only studies which included control groups of healthy individuals were included. Results: Of the 657 studies initially identified, 80 were eligible for inclusion. The total number of participants was 6,827. The highest reported Pd values were 58.56 ± 16.24 ms; the lowest were 7 ± 2.7 ms. The weighted mean was 33.46 ± 9.65 ms; weighted median was 32.2 ms. Gender and age were not found to be associated with significant influences on P-wave parameter values. High-normal BMI was not found to be associated with increased P-wave parameter values. Conclusions: Pd, Pmax, and Pmin span a wide range of values in healthy individuals. Seemingly, abnormal values were often reported in healthy adults. The high variability of P-wave parameters in healthy individuals, and overlapping of the results with those reported for patients with increased risk for atrial fibrillation, might suggest that this technique has limited sensitivity and specificity. The variability between studies may stem from methodological issues and, therefore, there is a definite need for methodological standardization of Pd measurements. © 2012, Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
