Today, more and more countries have understood that a 'silent' war of terrorism against countries and organizations is taking place. This war includes dedicated assaults on important infrastructure, effecting the economy and critical management of every-day life.
In addition to the security dangers involving infrastructure, the deep involvement of computer related technologies in our lives exposes us to dangers which didn't exist before. For example, in the medical field, electronic imaging, medical carts, computerized life-saving equipment, computerized hospital emergency rooms, and computerized operating rooms, are all at risk of cyber attacks.
Due to the rich technological attack potential in the past few years, we are witnessing more complex attacks which are more specific and multi-faceted, due to the knowledge acquired in computerized attack methodology combined with knowledge in additional sectors such as chemical, finance, electric, and more.
