IDF’s Cyber Defense units ‘simulate attack on alien threat’

IDF Cyber Defense units joined 20 groups from Israel and around the world last week at the IDefense competition, and took part in simulating responses to a highly unusual scenario: an alien attack on Earth.

The units were asked to launch mock attacks on the ‘alien’ communication networks, defenses, and attack capabilities at the event, held at the Yitzhak Rabin Center in Tel Aviv on Thursday.

"The cyber dimension is growing stronger from day to day, and with it, the IDF’s dependence on the use of networks," said Chief Communications Officer Brig.-Gen. Eyal Zelinger.
