Middle East country Israel is partnering with several countries including India to develop state-level cyber shields via its nodal agency Israel National Cyber Directorate (INCD).
According to Yigal Unna, director general, INCD, Isreal garners 20% of the total global private investments in cybersecurity and is now looking to strengthen its partnership with global nations to make its cyber world safer and more robust.
Speaking in the context of increasing cyber threats, Unna said that they are becoming “bigger in quality and volume”.
Unna further said that country’s securing cyberspace of the country is one of the main objectives of the directorate, which today is a consolidated body after the merger of the National Cyber Authority and the National Cyber Bureau.
Isreal strongly believes its ties with other nations is important to develop a stronger defence against cyber attacks. Moreover, country’s PM Benjamin Netanyahu invited further global investments in cybersecurity.
