Estimated read time 2 min read

Iran has announced that it has successfully prevented a cyberattack on its central bank. The incident was revealed by the country’s Minister of Information and Communications Technology, Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi, who stated that the attack was thwarted by the country’s cyber defense systems.

No further information has been provided about the nature of the attack or who may have been behind it, however the minister emphasized that the country’s central bank has strong security measures in place to protect against cyber threats and that it continues to monitor its systems for any potential security breaches.

Iran has been the target of several cyberattacks in the past, including a major attack on its oil sector in 2012 that was widely believed to have been carried out by a state-sponsored group. The country has since taken steps to strengthen its cyber defense capabilities and has set up a national cyber defense center to protect against cyber attacks.

In a statement, the minister said: “We will not allow any cyberattacks to disrupt our economic systems and we will take all necessary measures to protect our national interests.”

As per reports, the cyber-attack on the central bank did not cause any damage or disruption to the banking services, the country’s cyber defense systems have been able to stop the attack in the early stage, and the investigation has been launched to find out the source and the nature of the attack

In today’s digital era, where countries are increasingly dependent on technology and the internet, cyber threats are a growing concern for governments around the world. Cyberattacks on financial institutions can have severe consequences for the economy and can even lead to loss of confidence in the financial system. Thus, it’s imperative for countries to take necessary measures to protect their economic systems from cyberattacks.
