The head of the Israel Defense Forces’ (IDF) Military Intelligence Directorate, Maj. Gen. Tamir Hayman, stated Tuesday that cyberattacks against Israel will be met with counter cyberattacks.
“Israel is under constant threat in the cybersphere, and occasionally cyberattacks are carried out against it. We are able to deal with most of the threats via advanced defensive capabilities,” he said.
“But just like in other spheres of war, defense alone is not enough… Those who attack Israel by air, sea, land or cyber should understand the risk they’re taking. As they learn to know time after time, offensiveness will be answered accordingly.”
