Israel launches cyber warfare training program

The program which has been named as “Magshimim Le’umit” was under planning for last three years, allows youth between the age of 16 to 18 to participate in this extraordinary training. 

At the occasion, the Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that: 

Israel is under massive cyber attacks everyday; hackers from Iran and other countries are disturbing the country’s online infrastructure, it is now time for Israel to develop a better and secure cyber world for the country and for this purpose the government has finally unveiled the training program through Israel National Cyber Bureau (INCB). 

He added that the trained students are the future and guardian of the country, Israel is world leader in Cyber intelligence and it is our duty to maintain that position and don’t loose it to any other nation. 

The decision of opening a cyber warfare training program at such a high level shows that past hacks from Anonymous hackers for #OpIsrael has affected and damage the country’s cyber space.

However, It will be important to see the content of training at Magshimim Le’umit and results will be seen in future.
