JERUSALEM, Jan. 5 (Xinhua) -- The Manufacturers Association of Israel (MAI) on Tuesday announced the creation of a cybersecurity headquarters to deal with mounting cyber attacks.

The MAI, an umbrella organization of Israeli industrialists, explained that the headquarters was established due to the significant increase in cyber attacks on the Israeli industry.

The headquarters will provide information and services on cyber protection to Israel's industry and business sectors, as well as real-time support to deal with cyber attacks.

"The advancement of technology and the transition to advanced manufacturing and data-based management have increased cyber threats to the Israeli industry," the MAI said.

The headquarters' management, which includes senior members of the Israeli hi-tech and cyber industry, will be headed by Refael Franco, former deputy head of the Israel National Cyber Directorate.

The MAI also established a forum of cyber companies, for advising the headquarters and promoting cyber security for the Israeli industry.
