Speaking to NIPNA, Ghodratollah Nasiri, head of HSE management
at NPC, said the preliminaries of protecting the petrochemical plants and projects
in the country had been taken against potential cyberattacks by enemies.
He said all the measures had been prepared to for example safeguard
plants against disconnection of the internet.
He also underlined holding of a cyber wargame in the
petrochemical industry, adding given the cyber operations of the enemy states against
the Islamic Republic of Iran’s vital infrastructures, especially the energy and
communications sectors, the Cyberspace Council and the Supreme National
Security Council ordered all sectors to take steps to combat cybercrime. Accordingly,
“we designed the maneuvers that were held in the first phase of cyber wargame
in the area of Assaluyeh, southern Iran, and soon a cyber wargame will be
held in Mahshahr Economic Zone in southwestern Iran.”
