Ya’alon: Cyber ‘is its own battlefield’

Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon called cyber "its own battlefield" Wednesday at a Cyber Conference at Tel Aviv University. He said Iran, terror organizations, cyber hackers, and Hezbollah activists have all threatened Israel militarily and economically in the cyber sphere.

"Cyber allows asymmetric attacks by weaker players with limited monetary  investment," he said, emphasizing the need for increased investment in cyber defense infrastructure that would counter the threats.

"Cyber attackers can hit us," he said, "but we need to hit them back."
