Iran to Unveil Indigenous Cyber Products Tomorrow
TEHRAN (Tasnim) – A dozen home-made technological products to be used in the cyber space will be unveiled in Iran on Saturday, December 14.
The 12 cyber products, all developed and manufactured by local experts, are to be unveiled in a ceremony to be attended by Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Hossein Dehqan, as well as Head of Iran’s Civil Defense Organization General Gholam Reza Jalali.
The upcoming ceremony will also see the opening of an exhibition, entitled “Towards Safe Indigenous Infrastructure.”
More than 30 knowledge-based companies are expected to take part in the exhibition.
The Iranian experts have in recent years made great headway in producing home-made defensive equipment and have also made progress in securing the country against cyber attacks.
Earlier in October, Iran’s Civil Defense Organization planned several cyber drills to find out the weak points of the country’s major institutions, such as the Central Bank.
General Jalali had announced that a series of specialized drills were carried out in a number of key organizations, like the Central Bank, the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting and a mobile phone operator to expose their vulnerabilities.
“They had many weak points, and we gave them the necessary warnings to remove the weaknesses,” he explained.
