MOSCOW, December 7. /TASS/. Dozens of millions cyberattacks are initiated against Russia annually, Secretary of the Security Council Nikolay Patrushev told reporters on Wednesday.
"Dozens of millions attacks per year [are initiated against Russian internet resources]," the official said.
Such attacks are staged daily, Patrushev said. "There is a special system preventing such attacks. We have information regarding that, which is reported to the government and to the president," he added.
Russia’s President Vladimir Putin will sign the decree on Russia’s new economic security strategy by March 1, 2017, according to Patrushev.
"The president will have signed the decree [on economic security strategy] by March 1," Patrushev said.
"We were discussing (at the Security Council meeting) the National Security Strategy, supplied by the given draft strategy (of Russia’s economic security until 2030)," he said.
The updated strategy names all the challenges and threats Russia is facing in the economic security sector nowadays. It sets goals and tasks along with the indicators needed to assess implementation of the strategy and presents the steps needed to ensure the country’s economic security.
"The draft strategy has been generally approved," the Security Council secretary said, adding some provisions would be used to draw up the strategies of Russia’s social and economic development, spatial development and other documents.
"Instructions have been issued, primarily for the cabinet, - after the decree is readied and the president signs the strategy - to work out an integrated plan for implementation of the given strategy," he said.
"On the whole, there is confidence that the strategy will be implemented," he noted. "It will ensure economic independence, economic stability and resilience and will facilitate a higher quality of living standards and will bring prestige to Russia around the world."
