IC3 announces cyber centre deal

28th March 2017 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


The Israeli Cyber Companies Consortium (IC3) will establish a national cyber centre in an unnamed Latin American country, Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) announced on 27 March.

Led by IAI, the centre will provide strategic national level cyber defence capabilities, including risk evaluation, establishment of advanced monitor and defence against cyber-attacks, an information-sharing infrastructure, and a cyber-training programme.

ELTA Systems will oversee the project's implementation; supplying a national-grade solution for the identification, investigation and early detection of cyber-attacks; accompanying and training cyber personnel; and establishing a public information-sharing platform in the cyber domain.

Other consortium members include Verint Systems, which will deploy its Threat Protection System solution, an essential multi-vector detection, automated investigation and response platform focused on advanced cyber-attacks at the national level; and Check Point Software Technologies, which will supply solutions for Next Generation Threat Prevention, Advanced Access Control and forensic lab tools, fused with real-time actionable intelligence at a national scale, providing protection against cyber-attacks.

ClearSky will provide cyber intelligence solutions, strategic planning, and cyber defence methodologies for national cyber protection and collaboration, while CyberX will deal with the detection of cyber threats in SCADA and ICS systems.

The IC3 was established in 2016 to provide end-to-end, cyber solutions at the national level.

Esti Peshin, general manager of IAI's Cyber Division, said: 'Combining technological cyber solutions from an assortment of leading Israeli companies allows us from both the international and technological level to offer a comprehensive and integrated solution - this is a case when the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

'The endorsement of the Israeli government is critical to the success of the consortium, and we are confident that the model applied in Latin America will continue to prove itself in the future.'
