The US and Israel will sign a new agreement which will automate their sharing of cyber data for the first time, US Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas announced on Monday at a cyber conference at Tel Aviv University.
Following his speech, Mayorkas as well as the university’s head of its cyber department, Maj. Gen. (res.) Isaac Ben-Israel, sat down with the Jerusalem Post to further explain the details behind the new agreement.
Although the US and Israel have closely shared cyber information and signed several agreements in the past, the new agreement will qualitatively take the speed of sharing to an entirely different level, said the deputy secretary.
