According to Top Iran Official, Cyber War is Worse Than Physical War

According to Top Iran Official, Cyber War is Worse Than Physical War - top government contractors - best government contracting eventA top official from Iran has said that a cyber war is “more dangerous than a physical war,” Reuters reports.

Due to this philosophy, Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps deputy commander of ground forces, Abdollah Araqi, said that Iran has the tools in case of a cyberwar. 

Reuters also reported that Tehran is working on developing a national Internet for improved cybersecurity.

Iran has been the subject of numerous cyberattacks, including 2010’s Stuxnet virus and an attack on Kharg Island, which controls Iran’s crude oil export.

Some analysts say that attempting to bomb Iran's suspected nuclear sites would be less effective than waging a cyberwar.
