General Kamal Hadianfar: Cyber Security is Important

Brigadier General Kamal Hadianfar, Iran's Cyber Police chief

Brigadier General Kamal Hadianfar, Iran’s Cyber Police chief, said on Tuesday that countries must work with each other to keep the cyber space more secure than before. Iran’s police have launched the cyber division on June 2009 in order to detect and lower cyber crimes in country. The same practice had been done in other countries too.

“At this time, there is not any defined border in cyber world. So, keeping this space secure is not achievable unless countries from all over the world start partnering with each other to combat with cyber crimes.” Brigadier General Kamal Hadianfar told a press-conference on Tuesday. “Iran is ready to share its experiences on this subject with other countries.”

He went on to talk about the current importance of cyber space in world affairs. “Currently, cyber space has become an important opportunity for many countries and citizens. They can make profit from its unlimited potentials and opportunities. However, governments and countries must also work hard on the security side of this massive network.”

“New innovations in different fields are offering noticeable opportunities to people. But we cannot easily ignore the importance of cyber space security.” Kamal Hadianfar concluded.

During the recent years, international hacking groups have targeted services offered online by U.S.-based companies. The United States government has previously accused Iran’s Cyber Police of launching cyber wars against U.S. However, Tehran had repeatedly rejected any claims in this regard.
