Cyber Security M.Sc. Program at Ben-Gurion University


Commercial and Military Hackers, Beware!


The world is full of cyber criminals – thieves of personal identities and financial information or hackers who wish to reveal state or business secrets. In July 2014, during Operation Protective Edge, several Israeli commercial, news and state-official websites have been hacked as part of the fight against the State of Israel. Such cases were a reminder to the important role of cyber security.


Cyber security specialists protect more than websites; they also protect bank databases that hold financial information of millions of people, or military software that could cause huge destruction if it were in the wrong hands. As the world becomes increasingly more hi-tech, the role of these professional is becoming exponentially more important.
