In the near future, the cyber industry will have to cope with a wider array of cyber threats and challenges resulting from the vulnerabilities of the connected devices in the Internet of Things (IoT), vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication, medical devices, and smart cities, etc.
It is undoubtedly a global problem with a unique Israeli point of view.
