3 Mill Cyber-attacks Against Israeli Airport
By Micah Halpern

I've Been Thinking:
Israel's largest international airport is named after David Ben Gurion, the first president of Israel. Ben Gurion Airport is now the target of cyber attacks.
In fact, Ben Gurion Airport repels 3 million cyberattacks per day. Per Day!!! Most of the attacks are from computer bots. But there are also real hackers involved.
In order to better defend against these attacks Israel, and especially Ben Gurion Airport, has created a consortium of cyber defense companies, organizations and even private companies.
The consortium includes Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI), CyberArk, Check Point Software Technologies Ltd., El Al’s Cockpit Innovation hub, Karamba Security and ClearSky.
They have created a combination of veteran cybersecurity and aerospace firms that, according to an official statement from the consortium, already offer "a broad range of aviation, security, intelligence and cyber solutions for the global market" alongside "young startups with cutting edge cyber products and technologies."
The threats are real. And Israel is taking them very seriously.
