Israel Police Inspector General Yohanan Danino announced the creation of a 60-person unit to tackle cyber crime Monday, to be funded with assistance from the Treasury.

Speaking at the HLS conference on homeland security in Tel Aviv, Danino said that he participated in an Interpol conference in Rome last week in which cyber crime was identified as an issue that threatens the whole world.“Terrorist groups and organized crime have a lot in common,” he explained. “They [both] develop from local into global organizations, from hierarchical into networked organizations, and their level of sophistication is growing.”
