Israel’s New ‘Cyber Gym’ Trains Cyber Warfare

Israel’s new state-of-the-art “Cyber Gym” was opened this month by the Israel Electric Company (IEC) to train IT and infrastructure company employees to defend against cyber attacks, reports AFP.

Cyber Gym director Ofir Hason discussed the threats Israel faces. “Israel, we believe, is the most-attacked country,” Hason states, adding that IEC, “the most-attacked civilian company in Israel, (has the) unique capabilities to train other companies around the world” to defend against system hacking.

Israel faces roughly 100,000 cyber attacks per day according to an expert’s estimate. IEC’s estimates are even higher: the company alone receives around 10,000 attacks per hour, reports IEC CEO Eli Glickman.
