Iranian details of hybrid operations and cognitive warfare actions by Iran

Treadstone 71, LLC, your primary source for cyber intelligence and counterintelligence training and services, released in-depth details of Iranian intelligence-backed hybrid operations and cognitive warfare actions.

“Iranian intelligence uses social media to threaten and impersonate dissident groups, blatantly violating platform rules. Known intelligence operators openly working in cyberspace use social media for command and control,” stated Jeff Bardin, Chief Intelligence Officer at Treadstone 71.

“Basij Cyber Battalions execute plans on Twitter using pre-defined hashtags manipulating social media. These actions combined with physical infiltration of Iranian protests and demonstrations and distributed denial of service attacks shows a hybrid warfare approach to Iranian regime attacks against any opposition, internal and external.”

Treadstone 71 accessed the Iranian intelligence playbook for infiltrating protests. We found Iranian intelligence operators regularly infiltrating demonstrations, perverting protester messaging with divergent disinformation. Basij Cyber Battalions follow Telegram instructions describing how to avoid suspension on Twitter, while the regime develops devious ways to subvert and quash free speech. The plans include threatening messages and warnings on sites such as Telegram, Skype, Whatsapp, and Twitter, issuing instructions to execute cyber operations, how to create and manage fake social media accounts that impersonate media personalities, journalists, opposition leaders, and politicians while spreading false information that demonizes anything and anyone contrary to Islamic Republic’s ideals.
