Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister Ze’ev Elkin said at a major global conference on cyber-security in South Korea that due to security threats faced by Israel, the Jewish state has “a record number of young people who enter the fields of technology and cyber defense every year.”

“Israel is a global power in the realm of cyber defense,” Elkin said Thursday at the Seoul Conference on Cyberspace, which gathered more than 1,000 representatives from some 90 countries, Israel Hayom reported. “Due to the constants threats, Israel uniquely serves the global community as a live lab for new technologies. We have turned the threat of cyber attacks into an opportunity for knowledge and growth.”

According to February’s Global Cyber Defense Report by McAfee and Security & Defense Agenda, Israel works with Finland and Sweden against potential cyber attacks.
