The vision of the ICT Authority is “a single, citizen-centric government, that places the citizen at the center that works transparently and effectively, advances innovation and puts technology at the disposal of the public”.

• Cyber security

• IT Governance

• Shared Platforms, Applications and Services

The popular site gov.il, the portal to the Israeli government information and services site for citizens and business, is one of the many projects of the ICT Authority.

Yair Frank, Head of the <a>ICT Authority</a>, at the Prime Minister ‘s Office of Israel, will present what Israeli Digital Government can do for the citizen and for business. 

In addition, a senior personality from the Israeli IT industry will talk about what Israeli business needs most from the Israeli Digital Government. 

The ICT Authority is seeking the latest technologies for  this initiative. It even organized a Hackthon for Digital Government startups and hopes to start 2018 to have a call for proposals for Digital Government Start- ups with the ICT Authority. JBNF, with the IGTCloud Association https://www.meetup.com/IGTCloud/ and the ICT https://www.gov.il/en/departments/units/e_government will select ten innovative Israeli start-ups to present at an event planned for this launch.
