‘Israel Needs Offense in Cyber War’

Israel needs to have a strong offense in the cyber war as well as a strong defense, former IDF intelligence head Amos Yadlin said this week. Yadlin spoke at a conference on virtual threats in Tel Aviv.

Cyber terror does not currently pose a serious threat to Israel, he said, but Israel must prepare. Citizens do not fully comprehend the damage cyber warfare can do, he warned.
