Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu writes a special article for “Globes” about the cyber security revolution.
The cyber revolution is at its height. The meeting point between the power of thought and connectivity is changing our world, and affecting all spheres of life, as individuals and as a nation. Israel’s power in science and technology is creating a great opportunity to position ourselves in the forefront of cybernetic innovation.
Together with the opportunities, there are also risks. Everything is penetrable in the cyber era: our personal details, commercial and defense secrets, national infrastructure – anything can be stolen, disrupted and destroyed. The worst cyber attacks against organizations and countries in recent years around the world have taught us an obvious lesson – cyber defense is an essential condition for national security and economic growth in the 21st century.
