MOSCOW, March 05. /ITAR-TASS/. The head of the CIS anti-terrorist center, Andrei Novikov, has warned about possible operations of cyber terrorism which might be undertaken in the near future.
The problem of responsibility for counter-terrorist operations in cyber space will be raised sooner or later. It is particularly important if anti-terrorist cyber operations are conducted by security bodies and secret services of several CIS member-states, Novikov told Itar-Tass.
Novikov assessed cyber terrorism as hazardous to the economy and ecology and capable to provoke mass destruction of the population. He warned of a possible " technological trap" for developed informational infrastructures. The more sophisticated they are the more vulnerable they become for cyber terrorists, Novikov said.
"Independent studies in 14 countries, including Russia, showed that 91 percent of the companies questioned had encountered information security threats", Novikov said. He underlined that cyber terrorists target diplomatic and government bodies all over the world.
"In recent years, the list of potential targets has been enlarged to include companies dealing with energy, water supply and nuclear and aerospace issues. As a matter of fact, it is a potential cyber war. But unlike the previous wars waged within the previous technological formats, this war is an undeclared one which participants are unknown and the means of destruction used could be found out only after a considerable lapse of time," Novikov said.
