Kinds of cyber-attacks against Russian resources changed and became more sophisticated but the national IT sector has changed its attitude towards information security to a more serious one in recent months, Deputy Department Director of the Russian Ministry of Digital Development told TASS.

"New cyber-threats required more active countering them. The government and the business are pooling efforts now and are acting in a cohesive way against cyber-threats. The sector has started treating information security more seriously and resources have become more secured," Evgeny Khasin said.
