MOSCOW, July 5 (Itar-Tass) - Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday urged the Security Council to improve the level of country’s protection against cyber attacks.
“We must be ready to efficiently counter threats in the information space, increase the level of protection of corresponding infrastructure, first of all information systems of strategic and vital facilities,” the president said at a session of the Security Council, asking it to come up with priority moves in that direction.
“The importance of information technologies is growing in present-day military conflicts,” the president marked. “The so-called cyber attacks are already used for the settlement of tasks of military-political nature, and according to specialists their so-called incapacitating power may be stronger than that of conventional weapons,” he noted.
