Specialist RegTech provider Shield today announced it is proud to be part of a historic Israeli delegation that will be the first to visit the GITEX Technology Week Live 2020 in Dubai, from 6th – 10th December 2020. Following the momentous bilateral agreement between Israel and UAE earlier this year, the Dubai World Trade Centre (DWTC) and the Israel Export & International Cooperation Institute (IEI) are jointly presenting the inaugural ‘UAE-Israel Future Digital Economic Summit’ at the 40th anniversary of GITEX, and Shield is a key part of the Beyond Business Fintech Delegation, led by Bank Hapoalim, one of Israel’s leading banks.
Eran Noam, Chief Business Officer at Shield will be a key member of the delegation visiting GITEX in Dubai. He commented, “I am honored to be representing Shield and joining other key technology providers, business leaders and government officials as part of this momentous and truly historic visit. We now have an exciting opportunity to meet with potential customers and investors, to present the best and brightest technology and innovation, and to create long term partnerships in a shared transformative digital future.”
By implementing the strictest of health precautions, GITEX 2020 will be the only tech and startup show in the world taking place in-person this year. It will provide a rare opportunity for visitors to hear from the ministers, policymakers, tech and business leaders of both UAE and Israel who will be sharing their joint vision and ambitions. It also provides the perfect introduction to Israel’s startup ecosystem, to forge new business collaborations and network with the first and largest business, tech and investor delegation flying in from Israel to Dubai.
Eran is scheduled to discuss with local financial institutions about the benefits of deploying Shield’s AI-Powered, Communications Compliance Platform, which helps regulated financial institutes to manage and unfold the risks, fraud and misconduct behaviours that arise within its employees’ communications.
Eran added, “Not only is this event historic, but it is also an exciting opportunity for Israeli tech providers to introduce their technology to potential customers and partners in a nation that is a world leader in adopting innovation and creating some of its own. Shield is a prime example of the advanced FinTech and RegTech technology being developed in Israel, and it is perfectly placed to address the needs of financial firms across UAE and beyond. With political boundaries having made trading difficult in the past, there is enormous potential for Israeli technology providers like Shield to offer our cutting-edge solutions to a whole new audience, and to work together to deliver considerable benefits to the market and suppliers alike. I am looking forward to building new partnerships and to engaging with new customers – these are exciting times.”
