Story Code : 817550
"According to observations, despite western media claims, no successful cyber attacks have been carried out on vital oil facilities and infrastructure," the AFTA Strategic Management Center, a body working under the Iranian Presidency, said in a statement released on Saturday, 21 /9/19.
Some media claimed on Saturday that a number of Iranian servers and websites, including petrochemical companies, experienced cyber attacks.
The head of ITO (Iran’s Information Technology Organization) Amir Nazemi also rejected the report. In a message via Tweet Nazemi wrote, "In the last 48 hours, there were no unexpected incidents that showed cyber attacks being observed in the Dejfa shield."
In May 2019, the Iranian ICT Ministry launched a cyber security project codenamed Digital Fortress (Dejfa in Persian) to protect the country from increasing cyber threats targeting Iran's infrastructure and online business.
