TEHRAN (FNA)- Head of Iran’s Civil Defense Organization General Gholam Reza Jalali called on the country’s scientific centers to double their efforts to find the potential sources of threat, and said war with the US now takes place at the think tanks.
“The scientific basis and roots of the threats make us give up the traditional approach, avoid repetition of the past and look at the future,” Jalali said, addressing a ceremony to inaugurate the website, journal and library of Iran’s Civil Defense Organization’s Studies and Research Center in Tehran on Saturday.
“The basis of the offensive and defensive war with the US is now shaped and designed in scientific and theorization centers,” he added.
Jalali underlined the necessity for holding workshops, translating different texts and scrutinizing the enemy’s viewpoints as a first step to understand the real and potential sources of threat, and said scientific centers and think tanks should act preemptively in dealing with threats.
He also pointed to updating current approaches, structures and strategies of scientific centers as another necessary step for fighting enemies’ threats.
In relevant remarks in 2012, Jalali said that the enemy is developing, mastering and using the hi-tech to strike at Iran, and Tehran should adopt a smart civil and cyber defense strategy against this approach.
Jalali said his organization aims to harness and reduce threats against Iran, “so, threats determine the direction of our movement”.
Noting that the threats in the cyber space are changing qualitatively and quantitatively, he said that the enemy is enhancing its technologies using smart systems to have their control wherever these technologies are used.
Then, technologies have become a tool of power in today world, he said, and added that most of the world’s new technologies and systems enjoy an IT system to compile and send reports to the producer of that technology.
“I think that utilizing hi-tech is like playing in enemy’s court because it has been developed based on the capabilities of the enemy,” Jalali said.
He then said the US and Israel own a major share of infrastructural companies and hi-tech firms to the very same end. “Thus, Iran is necessitated to design a new model for cyber defense,” he said, adding that such a civil defense model should not be a conventional and symmetric one, given the aforementioned facts.
