KRASNODAR, June 23. /TASS/. Russia has drafted an updated concept for the Convention on International Information Security and intends to present it soon, a Russian Security Council official, Sergey Boiko, told the Kuban CSC 2021 international conference in Krasnodar.
He underlined that Russia is now focused on creating a platform which would help to ensure international information security globally, stressing that these obligations can only be enshrined for the whole world as a convention passed at the UN level.
"Russia has now drafted an updated version of the Convention [on International Information Security]. We will soon present it for everyone to see the approaches we are guided by," Boiko said.
He recalled that Russia "got concerned about this problem back in 2011" when the first version of this convention was prepared. "We drew attention of the whole international community but our opponents from Western countries do not seem ready to adopt such a binding document. But we see no other choice," the security official added. He pointed out that other countries "have already begun officially speaking about the need" to adopt a legally-binding document in this sphere.
