The Israel Defense Forces has in recent days held a video conference—the first of its kind—with militaries around the world to discuss insights on technological trends and operational issues during the coronavirus pandemic.

Lt. Col. O, from the J6 (teleprocessing) and Cyber Defense Directorate, which organized the conference, told JNS that about 60 participants from 19 countries in 45 locations took part.
“The organization principle was, first of all, to be in touch at a time when there are no delegations and no outbound travel since March,” explained the officer. “This contact is very important for us.”

The aim of the conference is to create a community of knowledge for information-sharing in the pandemic era, he added, allowing participants to also see, hear and speak to one another, while sharing valuable lessons.

Countries that took part included the United States, Britain, Thailand, Cyprus, Greece and several others. The video conference featured lectures by IDF representatives who outlined ways in which the Israeli military’s J6 and Cyber Defense Directorate adapted itself, as a technological unit, to the coronavirus restrictions.

“We explained how the unit accesses data on platforms, how it changed its modus operandi in working from home and what tools were needed for this. How we manage a routine of remote learning and the ways we had to think out of the box to provide unique solutions,” stated Lt. Col. O.
