Turkish Transport, Maritime Affairs and Communications Binali Yildirim said on Thursday the government had established a center to respond to cyber threats.
Speaking at a meeting on cyber security, Yildirim said Thursday's meeting would cover the decisions made earlier on forming public security network including forming internet exchange points and the foundation of "the Centre for Response to National Cyber Threats," (or USOM).
Yildirim said there were cyber attacks during Taksim Gezi Park protests of the past three weeks but necessary measures were taken and problems were solved with the foundation of the USOM which has been in service since May 15.
"There will be more cyber attacks similar to the ones during the protests and the attacks will increase. This is a global threat. The perception of global threat has been bothering every county now not only with physical forces but also with virtual methods. We have both taken measures and continuing works toward international cooperation. Many institutions have had cyber attacks," he said.
