MOSCOW, December 02. /ITAR-TASS World Service/. Russia’s Interior Ministry is set to train specialists to counteract Internet attacks of foreign intelligence services, RBC daily reports.
“It is found out that U.S. special services demonstrate interest in the activity of law enforcement bodies. We cannot allow them to get access to the database of the Interior Ministry, materials on criminal cases, especially high-profile ones, that are stored at investigators’ computers,” a source at the Interior Ministry told the daily.
The training contract’s price is 1.8 million rubles (one dollar is equal to approximately 33 rubles). The Interior Ministry asks to include into this price not only lectures, but also roundtable meetings and business games. The Global Nuclear Security Institute of Moscow Engineering Physics Institute, the Advanced Training Institute for Workers of the Fuel and Energy Complex and Bauman Moscow State Technical University expressed their intention to train anti-hackers for the Interior Ministry. Bauman Moscow State Technical University proposed the lowest price of 40,000 rubles per policeman for a two-month course. The course for each of 44 trainees will last 72 academic hours.
A similar state order for comprehensive counteraction to foreign technical intelligence was also placed by the St. Petersburg administration. It plans to pay 727,000 rubles for the anti-hacking training of 25 officials.
In summer, former CIA technical worker Edward Snowden revealed the United States National Security Agency’s clandestine mass electronic surveillance data mining program known as PRISM. This program tapped directly into the central servers of the leading Internet companies.
