IDF to set up unified cyber division within 2 years

The IDF said Monday it will set up a unified offensive and defensive cyber-warfare center within two years to address the significant challenges the IDF faces in the cyber dimension.

The decision follows a directive issued in recent months by Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Gadi Eisenkot ordering the military to set up a multi-branch committee, under the command of Military Intelligence chief Maj.-Gen. Herzl Levi, to examine ways to increase operational effectiveness in the cyber dimension.

The committee recently presented its conclusions before the IDF general staff and, based on its findings, Eisenkot elected to create a single cyber center.
