The Israeli army has new rules related to the proper use of social networks, while you are in the uniform. You are free to use Facebook and Twitter, including other similar media, but with the certain reasonable restrictions. Why all of this trouble with the armed social networks?
Well, you have probably heard that one reckless IS member had sent an invitation to US bombs with his reckless selfie. What you are going to do in your own free time is your thing. However, you should not jeopardize your unit’s position, including the complex and sensitive defense mechanism.
It is also worth mentioning that the same social networks can be used as a weapon. The Israeli army has one of the most sophisticated units for the cyber warfare in the world. That is why, we find a great deal of controversy in this specific do-or-not-do on social networks list.
We shall wait and see, how these newly imposed limitations are going to work for the cyber boys and girls in the Israeli army. Yet, there is some reason in it. You just cannot believe how many top military secrets we are ready to reveal so easily for a perfect selfie. Beware, because the enemy is watching.
The endless news flow about the Gaza conflict with a number of victims increasing on both sides and troubling potential for further escalation has completely camouflaged some other equally important events taking place in the background. One of them is definitely an unparalleled Israeli hacking school, which fights its virtual battles with the same or even greater intensity.
It is an intriguing and proven fact that the Israeli IT infrastructure is one of the most endangered and attacked in the world. This fact provides the Israeli hacking school with an absolute abundance of real-life scenarios and practicing material. Israeli hackers are among the best in the virtual battlefield. Is this true?
Well, we can never be quite sure about this one. As long as the system is functioning as it supposed that means someone is doing a proper job. The experts from the Israeli hacking school say that they regular job is to handle up to 10,000 different cyber attacks every single hour. How about that for a change?
We need peace in Gaza as soon as possible, in both real and virtual world. We are quite aware that this is an easy thing to say and almost impossible to achieve at the moment. Unfortunately, we cannot hear or see the cyber guns, but we can certainly experience their harmful effect first-hand once they occur.
