MOSCOW, June 25. /ITAR-TASS/. The Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO) will set up a cyber incident response center, the CSTO deputy secretary-general Khaibullo Latypov said at a seminar in Moscow on Wednesday.
According to Latypov, “The work is on the initial stage. Regulations on the center have been drafted.” “Then the issue will be coordinated by the CSTO countries. A decision on creating the center is expected to be signed by the heads of state,” Latypov said. Information security “became an important and inalienable element of collective security”, he added.
In April, CSTO Secretary-General Nikolai Bordyuzha initiated the decision on creating the cyber incident response center. “As for attacks on information, including from the territory of Ukraine, we’ll take them into account,” Bordyuzha said. “We’re trying to counter these attacks,” he noted.
