Iran takes websites offline after cyber attacks

7 Aug

Iran plans to move key ministries and state bodies off the internet next month in a bid protect the country’s intelligence from future cyber attacks, the country’s telecommunications minister has said.

Reza Taghipour told The Telegraph that the step was being taken because sensitive intelligence on the internet, which is controlled by “one or two” countries hostile to Iran, is vulnerable.

“The establishment of the national intelligence network will create a situation where the precious intelligence of the country won’t be accessible to these powers,” Taghipour said.     –    Arabian Business
