This was announced on Friday, May 20, by the Secretary of the Security Council (SB) of the Russian Federation Nikolai Patrushev following a meeting of the Security Council with Russian President Vladimir Putin. The council approved the draft state policy framework for the protection of the country’s critical information infrastructure.
“The anonymity of the global information space, strongly supported by Washington, contributes to the uncontrolled spread of malicious software and criminal activities of international cyber groups,” he said.
According to him, “financially motivated hackers from Western countries” are often involved in conducting cyber attacks with the aim of damaging Russia.
Today it also became known that Russian President Vladimir Putin instructed to develop a state system for the protection of information. He gave the relevant instructions to the participants of the meeting of the Security Council of the Russian Federation. The Head of State said that he expects concrete steps and proposals on “what additional steps should be taken to ensure the sustainable operation of the information infrastructure in government and public administration.”
