In an interview with The Jerusalem Post on Monday, the US Deputy Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas discussed a new agreement that the US and Israel will sign Tuesday, which will automate their sharing of cyber data for the first time.
Mayorkas made the announcement and spoke with the Post at the cyber conference at Tel Aviv University, along with the university’s head of its cyber department, Maj. Gen. (res.) Isaac Ben-Israel.
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.
