Bennett invites allies to form joint global cyber security network
Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said he views cyberattacks as one of the greatest threats not only to Israel’s national security, but to that of the world

Israel is launching an international cybersecurity network for like-minded countries to fight threats together, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett announced at the Cyber Week conference at Tel Aviv University on Wednesday. “Israel is opening up and announcing a Global Cybernet Shield,” Bennett said. “If you try and fight alone, you’re going to lose. If you fight together, you’re going to win.” Israel already has dozens of memoranda of understanding with other countries on cybersecurity, the prime minister said, but the Global Cybernet Shield is meant to “bring it to the next level of online, real-time network defense.” The shield is still in development, and is meant to be an international version of Israel’s “Cybernet” online-defense system. “I invite all like-minded countries to join today. Call Yigal Unna,” Bennett said, referring to the director of Israel’s National Cyber Directorate (INCD).
