National Cyber Security Organisation in Israel

A new analysis by NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence provides a comprehensive overview of cyber security structures and recent developments in Israel, a nation at the forefront of digital and cybersecurity innovation for the past decade. The CCDCOE Report “National Cyber Security Organisation: Israel“ describes a trend towards more transparency and ongoing institutional innovation in cyber security.

Israel’s establishment of national cyber security measures and institutions came about relatively early in comparison to other countries and continues to develop in the face of a challenging environment of military and civilian threats. For example Israeli banks, financial institutions, utility companies, and other critical infrastructure are among those most frequently subjected to hostile cyber incidents globally.
