Iran has become our dominant rival in cyber together with Hezbollah and Hamas, Israel National Cyber Directorate (INCD) Chief Gaby Portnoy said on Tuesday. Speaking at Tel Aviv University’s Cyber Week, he said, “We see them, we know how they work and we are there.” Portnoy made his comments a day after Iran’s steel industry took one of its biggest cyber hits in history, bringing it to a grinding halt and only days after an Iranian cyberattack on Israel’s siren early warning systems in Jerusalem and Eilat.

The INCD chief said Israel is building a “cyber iron dome” which will elevate cybersecurity by using new mechanisms with cyber parameters that will “reduce cyberattacks, provide new big data and an AI overall approach to synchronize nationwide real-time detection… for ongoing cyberdefense efforts.” He said, “we are moving faster from resilience to proactive defense,” trying to come after cyber attackers in their digital safe havens where they had planned attacks in the past without interference.
