“Those who know how to hack to financial bodies can also hack pharmaceutical companies and create a virus,” Jerusalem Venture Partners (JVP) founder and executive chairman Dr. Erel Margalit said.
“Those who know how to hack to financial bodies can also hack pharmaceutical companies and create a virus,” Margalit said. “Hackers can hack into labs and alter the composition of medicines and even do worse. We have no proof that the current virus is the result of a cyber-attack, but we know that it could be.”
Margalit added that hackers monitor the worldwide spread and panic the coronavirus causes and how it impacts the international economy. “This is a promo to what a quality pinpointed cyber-attack could cause. When a biological weapon is in the hands of hackers, the threat is bigger than ever.”
During the event, Margalit presented the Margalit Start Up City, intended to elevate growth-stage tech companies to the next level around the world and to provide accelerator space for growth-stage companies.
The participants showed great interest in Margalit’s model, as well as the reasoning and choices of location for the next centers across the globe.
“Israel would gladly export its knowledge and build the next innovation centers all over the world,” Margalit concluded. “Any city that sees itself as central must have an international cyber center. The biggest global threat today is through cyber-attacks that threaten health, finance, media, infrastructure, democracy systems and personal freedom.”
