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


Commercial and Military Hackers, Beware!

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.
