Diskin: 'Cyber armies' may cause strategic damage to world

The establishment of "cyber armies" throughout the world, including in Iran and Syria, is likely to cause "strategic damage" to other countries, former Shin Bet chief Yuval Diskin said on Thursday at a conference on cyber warfare at Tel Aviv University.
Diskin said Iran has announced investment in a project to develop "virtual attacks" and protect virtual property, and Syria has established a "cyber army" in light of the uprising there.
"We are not talking about a threat that is around the corner, but about a reality that already exists," Diskin said.
