Representatives of Israel’s National Cyber Bureau have revealed the government’s intention to launch a new task force whose goal will be to help consumers and businesses in dealing with cyberattacks.
In an interview with Bloomberg, the head of the National Cyber Bureau, Rami Efrati, has explained that the new cyber emergency response teams will focus on various types of incidents.
Individuals and companies targeted in cyberattacks can file a report and they will be assisted by experts who specialize in certain areas. For instance, if a company from the financial sector is targeted, a professional with knowledge of cyberattacks against this industry will offer assistance.
In addition to providing assistance to victims, the new program will also facilitate sharing of information regarding cyber threats.
The National Cyber Bureau was established two years ago in an effort to coordinate responses to cyberattacks launched against Israel’s critical systems.
