Israel to counter cyberthreats and to revolutionise Indian farm production

Boosting measures to counter cyberthreats and to “revolutionise” Indian farm production, Israel has proposed to access India’s “big data,” the Ministry of External Affairs said at the end of the bilateral discussions on Monday, when both sides concluded four agreements, a report in The Hindu by journalist Kallol Bhattacherjee claims.

Speaking to journalists about the ongoing visit of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Vijay Gokhale, Secretary in charge of economic relations in the MEA, said Israel proposed to track individual Indian farmers, even as both sides joined hands to use a similar data-driven method to fight cybercrimes.
