Israel Prepares for Cyberattacks

The Israeli government is stopping Internet access to foreign traffic through this week to avoid a cyberattack it expects pro-Palestinian hackers to launch. The military, law-enforcement agencies, and major companies have also prepared themselves for hacking or website defacement attempts. For example, the government may refuse electronic payments from abroad and postpone routine website maintenance. The government also reportedly instructed civil servants not to open email from foreign senders. (Reuters)(FARS News Agency)

Cyberattacks Against Israel Are Escalating

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has announced that his nation continues to face an increasing number of cyberattacks. “Every day there are many attempts to infiltrate Israel’s computer systems. That’s why I established the National Cyber Directorate last year, which serves as an electronic Iron Dome against computer terrorism,” he stated. (Iron Dome refers to an Israeli anti-missile system)  The cyberdefense task force has a five-year budget that includes investments in academic research and development. Targets this year include Bank Hapoalim, El Al Israel Airlines, and the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange.
