“Effective international cooperation is an important and determining factor in prosecuting and confronting cyber crimes,” General Hadianfar said in meeting with the representative of the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) to Tehran, Leik Boonwaat, on Wednesday.
Boonwaat, for his part, vowed that the UNODC would seriously pursue campaign against cyber crimes in Iran.
Iran hosted a conference and a regional workshop on international cooperation and campaign against cyber crimes on August 13-14.
Eight regional countries, representatives of Interpol and the NODC and Iran’s Cyber Police chief took part in the conference
The conference and the workshop were held to strengthen international cooperation on prosecuting cyber crimes and reinforce cyber space police forces of the neighboring countries.
In October 2013, Iran’s Deputy Police Chief Brigadier General Ahmad Reza Radan said that the country’s Cyber Police unit had greatly improved its infrastructures and is able to discover and detect over 60% of cyber-related crimes.
“Right now, the Iranian Law Enforcement Police have made eye-catching progress in the field of cyber infrastructures,” Radan said.
On January 23, 2011, Iran’s Cyber Police started its work to prevent espionage and sabotage activities through the internet.
