This SpringerBrief gives the reader a detailed account of how cybersecurity in Israel has evolved over the past two decades. The formation of the regions cybersecurity strategy is explored and an in-depth analysis of key developments in cybersecurity policy is provided.

The authors examine cybersecurity from an integrative national perspective and see it as a set of policies and actions with two interconnected goals: to mitigate security risks and increase resilience and leverage opportunities enabled by cyber-space.

Chapters include an insight into the planning and implementation of the National Security Concept strategy which facilitated the Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) agreement in 2002, (one of the first of its kind), the foundation of the Israeli Cyber-strategy in 2011, and details of the current steps being taken to establish a National Cyber Security Authority (NCSA).

Cybersecurity in Israel will be essential reading for anybody interested in cyber-security policy, including students, researchers, analysts and policy makers alike.

Editorial Reviews

"Book maintains an interdisciplinary approach, taking the audience through the disciplines of history, the social sciences, technology, and philosophy, even as it goes about explaining how cybersecurity has been treated in Israel, particularly during the last couple of decades. . book will be very helpful for academic and research establishments as well as policy-drafting institutions. It not only lays out the theoretical framework for coming out with useful policies, but also proves its efficacy by validating recommendations with material evidence." (CK Raju, Computing Reviews,, May, 2016)"The book is of great interest because Israel, in spite of its small size and limited resources, is widely considered one of the 'cyber super powers' alongside major countries such as the United States, Russia and China. . book is a valuable piece, written in a concise yet exhaustive way. . a must read for experts and analysts who want to expand their views on the cyber policy of one of the major cyber actors in the years to come." (Tommaso De Zan, The International Spectator, Vol. 51 (3), 2016)
