Israel is mulling the creation of a counter-cyberterrorism unit designed to safeguard both government agencies and core private sector firms against hacking attacks. The proposed unit would supplement the efforts of Mossad and other agencies in fighting cyberespionage and denial of service attacks. Israel is, of course, a prime …
Will they be calling the organization Jen-and-Roy-and-Moss-ad?
It took me a second, but good show sir ;)

"The proposed unit would supplement the efforts of Mossad and other agencies in fighting cyberespionage".
In the same league: Mobsters setting up a shop to fight break-ins, extortion and prostitution.
Israel can't defend itself from those vocal about their end and they are going to become the cyber police?
I guess it's more politically correct.
Let's hope they avoid offending those of other religions.
What a joke.
cost of defending against cyberespionage?
> The UK government last year earmarked £650m over the next four years to tackle cyberthreats ..
I could give them the loan of my bootable USB device, it only cost me twelve quid (£12) ..
Why do I have this foreboding....
That this is going to end up with the Mossad blowing away some guy who has been illegally downloading klezmer???
I for one welcome our trigger-happy Hebrew internet overlords!!
I do love the manner in which the English language is developing -
espionage is called «counter-espionage», cyber espionage is called «counter-cyberespionage», terrorism is called «counter-terrorism», cyber terrorism is called «counter-cyberterrorism», etc, etc. Eric Arthur Blair, to whom we owe the insight that War is Peace - demonstrated daily in our «responsibility to protect» interventions throughout the world - would be proud !...
>Israel is rumoured to have collaborated with the US<
I thought they were one and the same.
Simple way to protect infrastructure, disconnect it from the Internet, it's usually just a cable, sometimes yellow. That'll be £650 million please.
not as much
Since Israel took the opportunity to commit obvious war crimes while we had a turn over in leadership in the US as well as the unapologetic settlement activity, much of the goodwill sympathy received after 9/11 is gone. Many Americans look at Israel as our North Korea rogue buddy who does little for us but make the rest of the world angry at us. We would cut the cord but there are more jews in America than in Israel and they have some real political power here.
