MOSCOW, December 09. /ITAR-TASS/. Federation Council’s commission on development of the information society recommends the officials to use mobile devices accurately, especially during negotiations.
“Almost all mobile devices, our state officials use, are made of foreign parts and use foreign systems,” the commission’s head Ruslan Gattarov told reporters on Monday, stressing every device is connected to the Internet. “Since the owners have a device of the kind practically everywhere — at meetings, negotiations, including confidential ones, there is a risk of unwilling information leaks.”
The senator said he did not mean control over use of personal mobile devices (with the exception for protection of state secrets). He believes it necessary to discuss the practice of the officials’ using of the devices and to offer necessary recommendations on security.
This is not the first initiative on information security coming from the senator. In late November, Gattarov presented a concept on Russia’s cyber security, which had been offered by experts representing businesses, sciences and state management. The document, which is being finalized now, will be presented shortly to the Federation Council’s head Valentina Matviyenko for further presentation to the Russian Security Council.
