UAE cyber official says Israel, Emirates cooperating on threats

Israel and the United Arab Emirates are cooperating on cyber threats, the UAE’s top cybersecurity official tells Haaretz.

Mohamed Hamad Al-Kuwaiti says Israel just recently shared information on a Hezbollah cyberattack that targeted numerous countries at the start of the year, including the UAE.

“We have great cooperation,” Al-Kuwaiti says. “We have direct ties… It doesn’t matter who attacks us. We all need to cooperate on defense mechanisms and particularly on attackers’ tactics, techniques and methods.”

Al-Kuwaiti was speaking at Israel’s Global CyberTech event, hosted this year in Dubai.
