Moscow. July 7. INTERFAX - In order to counter hacker attacks in the Russian Federation, it is necessary to control the information space and monitor the actions of intruders, Deputy Secretary of the Russian Security Council Oleg Khramov told reporters.
"Successful counteraction to computer attacks and crimes using information and communication technologies requires the formation of a controlled information environment in which the actions of attackers could be tracked using appropriate technical means in the interests of ensuring the inevitability of their criminal procedural punishment," Khramov said, commenting on the updated version of the national security strategy of the Russian Federation.
He noted that due to the growing threats in the digital environment, information security has been singled out as a separate strategic national priority.
"It is important to move away from the practice of "patching holes", we need to strive to neutralize potential problems in advance by organizing the concentration of efforts and resources of state bodies, local self - government bodies, organizations and civil society institutions in the most important areas," the Deputy Secretary of the Security Council of the Russian Federation said.
