PM: Israel is Under Cyber Attack
Israel’s enemies have increased their efforts at cyber warfare, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Sunday at the beginning of a Cabinet meeting. “That’s why I established a cyber defense team,” he declared.
The IDF’s cyber defense squad is developing tools that in time will serve as a “digital ‘Iron Dome,’” he added. The Iron Dome protects cities in southern Israel from rocket attacks.
