Plan to Hold Cyber Wargames

Plan to Hold Cyber Wargames

Head of the Civil Defense Organization Lieutenant General Gholamreza Jalali said Iran plans to stage specialized wargames in the coming months to increase its cyber defense capabilities. Speaking to Tasnim News Agency on Saturday, Jalali pointed to cyber threats against Iran, noting that many hostile countries have established cyber armies and the Islamic Republic is one of their possible targets. “Holding specialized cyber wargames is one of the priorities [of the Civil Defense Organization] this year,” the official said, adding that the exercises are aimed at monitoring and eliminating any problems and weaknesses in the country’s cyber defense network. The remarks came after reports on Wednesday that the Statistical Center of Iran had been subjected to a cyberattack by hackers. While some news reports say members of the self-styled Islamic State terrorist group were behind the cyberattack, others say the attack was carried out by a group supported by the Saudi government. Jalali had previously warned that Saudi Arabia was planning a large-scale cyberattack against Iran.
