The cybersecurity division of the State Prosecutor indicted Tuesday an employee of the Israel Atomic Energy Commission, accusing her of dozens of unauthorized entries into computing systems and conducting searches that violate privacy laws.

The indictment was filed with the Rehovot Magistrate’s Court, after an investigation by the Director of Security of the Defense Establishment.

The suspect allegedly entered the Israel Atomic Energy Commission's computing system between August 2018 and last January between 70 and 100 times, conducting forbidden searches. She is accused of offenses of infiltrating computer data and privacy violation.

The court accepted the state’s request for a gag order on case materials and to hold hearings behind closed doors, on grounds of state security and protection of privacy.
