Potential Cyber Activity from Iran

There has been some concern raised about the possibility of increased cyber activity from Iran in retaliation of the airstrike that killed the Iranian general on January 3, 2020. FIS has a Global Rule already implemented blocking all transactions from Iran due to OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control) sanctions. Also, activity from Iran should be declined by the card brand networks prior to even reaching the FIS systems.
