The IDF completed recently the construction of its “cyber headquarters”: The control center for defending the army’s data and online communications. The situation room for cyber defense, which was begun two years ago, has been running operations for several months in an enhanced manner, and it is intended to allow the IDF to fully function, even under severe cyber attacks.

The subterranean facility that was established in the center of the country and spreads several stories underground will be staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with “cyber defense” soldiers, relevant intelligence personnel, and others, as the situation warrants. Col. H. from the C4I (Computer Service) Directorate will command the unit with the title “head of defense operations department.”
