Tampa, Fla. (September 28, 2023) – Cybecs, an Israeli cybersecurity company, announced today that it is establishing its regional headquarters in Tampa. The company plans to create 150 jobs over the next three years in roles such as information technology, software development, sales and human resources.

Cybecs, which offers rapid technological solutions to counter cyber threats for global operations, is initially leasing space in downtown Tampa as it ramps up its operations in Tampa.
