The Cyber security Department was established in 2015 with the objective of creating and managing tools for Israel’s foreign policy in cyber security. This pioneering work involves breaking ground in many new areas within the digital domain – policy, international relations, international security, international law and capacity building.
Global events in cyber security highlight emerging threats to international security and stability. There is therefore a pertinent demand for improved and up-to-date understanding as well as tools for mitigating those, and thus the department’s orientation and focus is by nature flexible and agile. The work environment is quite dynamic, especially in times of special conferences such as HLS-Cyber and Cybertech.
Qualifications required for the Internship:
Given the diverse areas of expertise required, the fellow would preferably have academic background in international affairs and/or security, as well as international law. Relevant work experience in computer sciences, policy planning, strategic affairs and international law is welcome. Fluent English is required.
