MOSCOW, January 10. /ITAR-TASS/. The Federation Council’s committee on development of information society will organize a public discussion of the national cyber security draft in January, the commission’s chairperson Ruslan Gattarov said on Friday.

The document is available on the upper houses’ site and will be placed on other platforms on the Internet, he said. In February, he continued, the commission will summarize suggestions and comments from experts and individuals to present an amended version to the Federation Council’s head, Valentina Matviyenko.

“We are interested in making the discussion most public,” the senator added.

Gattarov told reporters the draft strategy had been initiated by his commission, and in November of the past year the document passed the hearings at the Federation Council. One of the reasons of offering a document of the kind is “the importance of involvement in the process of providing cyber security for a maximum possible number of stakeholders, who represent businesses and the civil society.” The strategy should remove the existing gaps in the current provisions for cyber security, as “the documents we have now mostly deal with state-run bodies.”

Authors of the concept say their document dwells upon cyber security of an individual, organization and the state. The strategy offers measures to form the culture of information security and to raise the level of cyber literacy of the Russian people.

The document offers seven key directions: adoption of general measures for cyber security; improvement of the legal base and regulations; scientific research; organization of conditions for design, production and use of cyber security means; improvement of staff training; domestic and international cooperation in cyber security; formation and development of the culture of secure behavior in the cyber space and secure use of its services.
