Stuttgart (dpa / lsw) In the fight against Internet crime, Baden-Württemberg wants to benefit from Israeli knowledge and skills. “We can learn a lot from Israel in terms of cybersecurity,” said Digitization Minister Thomas Strobl (CDU) on Wednesday in Stuttgart on the occasion of a cooperation agreement.

Thomas Strobl, Minister of the Interior of Baden-Württemberg, speaks at a press conference.

The Baden-Württemberg Ministry of the Interior and the Israeli National Cyber ​​Directorate (INCD) want to exchange information on cybersecurity, situation reports, defense against cyber attacks and best measures, among other things. Experts should be networked and mutual visits should help to expand knowledge. Strobl said that because cybersecurity knows no national borders, it is “essential that we look for partners in Europe and internationally”. Therefore, INCD director Yigal Unna was also present at the third CyberSicherheitsForum on Wednesday.

In 2016, Strobl held talks on digitization and cybersecurity on his first trip abroad as Minister for the Interior, Digitization and Migration in Israel. A delegation trip from the digitization department followed in January 2020.
