Iran’s capability in detecting and thwarting cyber threats has tripled following the establishment of cybersecurity project codenamed Digital Fortress (Dejfa in Persian), a deputy ICT minister said.
Hamid Fattahi also told IRNA, “After Digital Fortress and SOC [security operations center] were set up, Iran’s capability in detecting and deterring cyberattacks surged.”
Digital Fortress was unveiled by Iran’s ICT Minister Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi in May to shield the country from increasing cyber threats targeting Iran’s infrastructure and online businesses.
SOC is a centralized unit that deals with security issues on an organizational and technical level. It is a central location within a building or facility from where staff members supervise the site, using data processing technology.
