On October 31, Major General Nadav Padan stated at the Reuters Cyber Security Summit that Iran has been launching an increasing number of attacks on Israel. Padan, who heads the IDF’s C4I and Cyber Defense Directorate, added: “Iran has been responsible for many of the thousands of daily cyberattacks on Israel”.
It’s no secret that Iran has been a major villain in our neighborhood for the last couple of decades. Since Iran has a weak conventional military, cyberattacks have become its favorite weapon. In the past few years, Iran has managed to become a major player in the cyber arena building its own cyber army and using various proxies (such as Hezbollah) around the world to execute its evil plans.
