A report published by State Comptroller Matanyahu Englman on cybersecurity in Israel finds flaws in the IDF and the Education Ministry.
The report finds the IDF has not updated its privacy protection protocols since 1996. It also finds the IDF saves biometric details of people who have died, leading to fears the information could be used by hackers to steal identities.
The IDF says it is examining the findings and notes that its databases are protected and not accessible to those outside the military.
The report also finds that cybersecurity lapses in the Education Ministry are likely to undermine the integrity of matriculation test results.
