MOSCOW, February 4. /TASS/. Cyber non-aggression pact is planned to be signed under the auspices of the United Nations Organization, a Russian senior military commander said on Thursday.
"Global informatization of society allows to use modern technologies to destabilize the social situation inside countries and influence the population," Major-General Yury Kuznetsov said at the forum on informational security "Infoforum-2016". "Heads of leading countries came to understand that it is necessary to ensure legal regulation of this sphere. The first step on the way to creating such conditions will be a cyber non-aggression pact that is planned to be signed under UN auspices," he added.
The pact will outline obligations to observe principles and norms of behavior in cyber space, Kuznetsov went on. "It is planned to pay special attention in this document to preventing cyber attacks at critically important informational resources of a country," he noted.
The pact will also focus on issues of terrorists’ use of technologies for illegal and propagandistic activities.
