Putin urges Bank of Russia to more actively deal with phishing sites

There are several issues that require attention in terms of security of personal data, the Russian leader noted

MOSCOW, June 30. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin urged the Central Bank to more actively deal with phishing sites used by fraudsters.

"Criminals’ actions rely on illegally received personal data," he said during his annual Q&A session on Wednesday. "There are several issues that require attention here. First comes largely the competence of the Central Bank, which should deal with the so-called phishing sites more actively," the president said.

He noted that previously it took several weeks, and even months, for the regulator to reveal such sites and close them. "Now it takes three days. But this is not sufficient either, the work should be even more active," Putin stressed.
