Israel has upped its efforts to recruit and develop its cyber expertise in light of a rise in recent cyber attacks against it.
The country already has double the number of scientists and engineers per capita compared to the United States, as well has 10 times more active duty soldiers, making the country poised to flourish in fields like cybersecurity, CS Monitor reported.
However, the country has begun tapping into high school classrooms to groom their teenagers into the next generation of cyber experts.
