Chinadaily.com – Head of Iran’s Passive Defense Organization, Brigadier General Gholam-Reza Jalali said Sunday that the Islamic Republic planned to hold a massive “cyber security maneuver” to increase readiness against possible cyber attacks on the country, the satellite Press TV reported.
Jalali said the maneuver was meant to assess the readiness of Iranian organizations and departments to prevent future cyber intrusions, said the report.
Jalali did not elaborate on the details of the cyber maneuver.
Iran’s Intelligence Minister Heidar Moslehi announced last October that Iran detected and thwarted the virus that aimed at infecting the country’s nuclear plant system.
Iran said that the computer worm, Stuxnet, infected 30,000 IP addresses in the country, including the personal computers of the staff at the Bushehr nuclear power plant.
Iran said that Israel and the conglomerate Siemens were behind the infection of Iranian industrial sites.
Earlier this month, Iranian lawmaker Avaz Heidarpour said the country’s security and intelligence bodies had “very strong capabilities” to counter Israeli cyber attacks.
If the United States and Israel seek to draw up a new plan to wage cyber attacks, Iran’s security and intelligence bodies will immediately adopt an “appropriate and precise” stance, he said
