In keeping with their goals to become a cyber-security power house, Israel has announced that they will be creating new education programs for high school Seniors. The new program will be starting with the 2018-2019 school year and will accept 340 high school Seniors. One hundred will go through training to become ethical hackers, while the remaining 240 will be trained in cyber-security. At the end of their training, the two groups will be required to evaluate the information security at their schools, write reports detailing their findings, and make recommendations for bolstering their security. Improvements like this can go a long way to improving the information security field by bringing in more professionals quickly. However, it can also open these schools up to greater targeting.
