Israel Faces Up to Two Million Cyberattacks a Day


The number of cyberattacks on Israeli computers responsible for critical infrastructure has grown from hundreds or thousands a day four years ago to as many as two million in a day, said Prof. Isaac Ben Israel, director of Tel Aviv University’s Blavatnik Interdisciplinary Cyber Research Center.

“We discover between 200,000 and 2 million hacking attempts every day in Israel on critical infrastructure such as water, electricity and railroads, but they are well-protected.”
“In the last two years especially, we’ve learned how to identify hackers by their country of origin, by terror and criminal organizations or intelligence agencies and the level of threat.”
