Iran is one among several countries to be invited to Turkeys Cyber Shield 2019 international cybersecurity exercise to be held in Ankara on 19th and 20th of December.
The event will be co-organized by Turkey's Ministries of Transport and Infrastructure, and Information and Communications Technologies.
Some of the activities in the summit include simulation and discussion of common types of cyberattacks such as malware, phishing and hacking.
"The exercise offers a unique opportunity to participate in numerous technical activities in cybersecurity. It will enhance incident response capabilities and preparedness, as well as promote a mutual understanding of cyber risks and its impacts," Deputy Transport and Infrastructure Minister Ömer Fatih Saya, was quoted as saying by Daily Sabah on Sunday.
Several countries, including Brazil, Kazakhstan and Azerbaijan, have been invited to the exercise.
"Every country will determine its own team comprised of five people. They will include malware analysts and experts in penetration testing, network security or industrial control system security," Sayan added.
The exercise is being held less than two months after a DDoS attack hit Türk Telekom, the country's largest service provider, disrupting internet access throughout Turkey.
