Insights From Israel: Oren Eytan, odixCEO on What's Changed Since Black Saturday Terrorist Attacks

In this video interview with Information Security Media Group, Eytan discussed:
- What has changed in Israel since the Oct. 7 attacks;
- How odix is helping businesses and citizens respond to cybersecurity attacks;
- His view of the ongoing war against terrorist forces.
