“Cyber warfare is as serious as conventional military warfare and its destruction power necessitates paying attention to cyber needs and requirements,” General Jalali said, addressing a specialized civil defense conference in the Northwestern West-Azarbaijan province on Wednesday.
He noted that the enemy’s number one threat comes through the Cyber space and other technological fields which are rated as the second.
The head of Iran’s Civil Defense Organization recalled the recent statements of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei about the importance of civil defense and its influence on improving the country’s immunity to threats.
General Jalali said that immunity (as highlighted by Ayatollah Khamenei) means that if the enemy takes a measure against the country, the effects of that threat on the country should be nullified.
He underlined that immunity is tantamount to reducing the level of vulnerability, boosting the country’s level of stability and facilitating crisis management.
The head of Iran’s Civil Defense Organization reiterated that the Iranian nation’s preparedness to confront enemy’s conventional war threats has been enhanced to the extent that the US officials have acknowledged now that their country cannot launch ground military attacks on Iran, and said the same should be done in area of cyber threats.
“The civil defense wants to strengthen the internal components of national power to such a level by reducing the vulnerability level in such a way that threats can be defused in case they are posed,” General Jalali said.
Early in May, General Jalali underlined his organization’s full preparedness to defend Iran against any possible cyber attacks by the enemy states, and informed that Iran plans to make use of an indigenous cyber defense system in near future.
Speaking at the second national conference on cyber defense, Jalali underlined the necessity for nationwide preparedness against enemies’ cyber threats.
Jalali noted that Iran should consider developing a smart domestic cyber defense model as a top priority.
In June, Deputy Head of Civil Defense Organization Brigadier General Gholam Ali Heidari said his organization enjoys state-of-the-art equipment and experienced experts to defend Iran against enemies’ cyber attacks.
General Heidari said that reducing vulnerability, promoting deterrence and national strength are among the strategic principles outlined by Iran’s Supreme Leader.
“Iran has achieved remarkable progress in civil defense field to which the Constitution attaches major importance,” General Heidari underscored.
He pointed out that threats posed to the country “are not always military and the country should maintain its immunity against biological and cyber threats”.
Describing cyber attacks as one of the enemies’ strategies to strike a blow to the Islamic Revolution of Iran, General Heidari noted that over 1,000 cyber attacks “are carried out against the country’s sensitive centers which are neutralized through the vigilance of the Iranian experts”.
He further added that, fortunately, Iran is of the forerunners to counter cyber attacks, as it is among top five states to thwart the threats.
