The three Iranian men, aged 21, 28 and 32, arrived at the Kapitan Andreevo checkpoint on Bulgaria’s border with Turkey on Nov. 2.

The Bulgarian Interior Ministry said that “fast-track proceedings” had been initiated against the trio, without explaining whether this means court proceedings or instant deportation.
Israel takes security very seriously, and that sentiment spills over into the cybersecurity world as well. The country has become a leader in cybersecurity. Last year, Thomas Bossert, Assistant to the U.S. President for Homeland Security and Counterterrorism, announced the U.S.-Israeli bilateral cyber working group. Israel is also helping smaller nations, assisting in the creation of 300+ cybersecurity startups, exporting $6.5 billion in cybersecurity products and attracting foreign investors.
