Computer networks of Iran have regularly undergone cyber attacks

     

“Today, the Armed Forces are equipped with the most advanced information technologies (IT) and today we should be ready to confront enemies in the field of electronic warfare,” Commander of the Information and Communication Technology Department of the General Staff of the Iranian Armed Forces Mohammad Aqakishi said in the Northwestern city of Zanjan today.

He also underlined the Iranian Armed Forces’ full preparedness to defend the country against any possible cyber war by the enemies.

“The cyber war is serious; today, information technology has been institutionalized in all bodies and the enemy come in control over this system, it may destroy it,” he added.

Also in February 2013, Rapporteur of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Seyed Hossein Naqavi Hosseini pointed to numerous cyber attacks by the US against the websites of other countries which oppose its policies, and warned Washington against retaliatory measures by those states.

"After the fallacy of 9/11 scenario was revealed, today Washington seeks to revive it in the cyber space to pursue the long-term and short-term objectives of its foreign policy," the lawmaker added.

In January 2013, Iran's mission at the United Nations criticized the US for its involvement in cyber attacks against Tehran, and stressed that Iran respects international laws and regulations against the use of malwares against other nations' economic sectors.

In a statement issued at the time, the mission said Iran condemns any use of malware that target important institutes by violating the national sovereignty of states.

In the last few years, various Iranian industrial, nuclear and government bodies have recently come under growing cyber attacks, widely believed to be designed and staged by the US and Israel.

After wide-scale cyber attacks on Iranian facilities, including its nuclear sites, last year, Iranian officials started planning a proper and well-concerted line of defense against virus attacks.

In March 2012, the Islamic Republic of Iran announced plans to strengthen its cyber power by establishing a Supreme Council of Cyberspace to defend the country against cyber attacks.
