Last Monday, Israel signed an agreement with the World Bank that is aimed to support developing countries in boosting their cybersecurity awareness and capabilities. As a result, Israel’s Ministry of Economy and Industry and the Israel National Cyber Directorate will contribute $1 million in the Digital Development Partnership for various outputs of knowledge-sharing, awareness-raising and capacity-building.

By joining Japan, the United Kingdom, Finland, Denmark and Norway, as well as with major entities such as GSMA in this multi-donor trust fund, Israel will promote digitalization and cybersecurity in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Eastern Europe. More specifically, the “Start-up Nation” will share its knowledge and experience in raising the readiness and resilience of critical sectors for cyber events, and will make its academics and entrepreneurs available for the development needs.
