Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu.

The threats facing Israel these days come not only from Gaza rockets, unrest in the Sinai and Iran’s nuclear development, but from virtual sources as well.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said at his cabinet meeting Sunday that there are “increasing attempts to carry out cyber-attacks on computer infrastructures in the State of Israel.”

“Every day there are attempts, even many attempts, to infiltrate Israel’s computer systems,” he said, according to Globes.

Netanyahu said Israel’s National Cyber Bureau is working to establish a digital counterpart to the Iron Dome missile defense system—which Netanyahu literally called a “digital Iron Dome”—to defend the Jewish state against cyber-terrorism.
