‘Our enemy understood it can try to shut us down with a cyber attack’

Driven by rising enemy capabilities to launch cyber attacks that could paralyze IDF operations, the military unit in charge of IT infrastructure held a large-scale cyber war drill on Thursday, testing its ability to switch to shadow facilities in the event of a shut down.

Lt.-Col. Yaniv Ossi, Head of IT Operations in the IDF’s Center of Computing and Information Systems, known by its Hebrew acronym, MAMRAM, told the Jerusalem Post on Thursday that the exercise reflected the IDF’s growing dependence on technology for every aspect of military operations.
