A training facility located on Israel's northern coastline near the Orot Rabin power station – called "Cyber Gym" – has been created to train information technology and infrastructure professionals to defend their organizations against "cyber attacks_," according to a recent article published by Security Week. Cyber Gym was inaugurated this month by the Israel Electric Corp (IEC) who has fallen victim to a number of attacks recently – _some 10,000 attacks per hour, according to the article.
Cyber Gym director Ofir Hason was quoted in the article to say, "_Israel, we believe, is the most attacked country, and as the most-attacked civilian company in Israel, this gives us the unique capabilities to train other companies around the world to defend against system hacking._" IEC CEO Eli Glickman was also quoted in the article saying, "_The Cyber Gym's instructors are well-versed in the art of cyber warfare._"
"We're a group of professionals from the army, security services, and (straight) from university_," one of the Cyber Gym's anonymous instructors said. "_It's a playground to simulate real cyberattacks," he said.
