Israel's vital systems are under attack from Iran and other elements, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said Tuesday at the opening ceremony of a new national program to train young people for cyberwarfare.

These threats "will only increase as we enter the digital age," Netanyahu stressed, speaking at Ashkelon Academic College.

"We are bolstering our ability to deal with these threats via the Israel National Cyber Bureau (INCB) that we established, and we are building a digital Iron Dome for Israel," the prime minister continued.

"To the outstanding pupils that are studying in the special program, I say: 'You are the future interceptors for the State of Israel.' We are one of the world's leaders in the field of cybernetics and we must maintain this position; therefore, we will continue to cultivate the generation of the future," he added.
