“ZIM is uniquely positioned to tackle cyber threats in our industry,” said Eli Glickman, ZIM President and CEO.

“In recent years, I was approached by global companies seeking advice regarding cyber threats, and I have decided to create ZKCyberStar to support and advise organisations in our industry, using our long-standing cooperative relationship with the top cybersecurity expert team of Konfidas.”

“With the creation of ZKCyberStar, we join forces to offer the most advanced and skilled services to cope with cyber threats and mitigate the risks and costly impact of cyber-attacks. We welcome Ram Levi, Eli Zilberman Caspi and the team of professionals at Konfidas to jointly create a top-level consulting company to help the industry cope with cyber threats.”
