Deputy Foreign Minister Hails Israel's Cyber Warriors
Cyber-terrorism and cyber-warfare are two of the biggest threats facing Israel, but have also led to some of Israel’s greatest successes, Deputy Foreign Minister Ze'ev Elkin said Thursday.
Elkin was speaking in South Korea, where he has been working to boost Israeli-Korean cooperation.
“Terror organizations, hacktivists and criminals are repeatedly attempting to damage our economy, institutions and infrastructure. However, we have succeeded in turning this weakness into a source of strength,” Elkin declared.
