Cyber-security in Russian government’s focus

2 Aug '17
A new Competence Center for Information Security is being set up in Russia to determine ways of ensuring cyber-security in Russia’s economy for the next three years, Firrma reported, citing Natalia Kasperskaya, the ex wife of Eugene Kaspersky (founder of Kaspersky Lab), chairwoman of the National Software Association (an NGO bringing together software developers across this country), and the future head of this new Center.

According to Mrs. Kasperskaya, the Center will focus on identifying problem areas, generating threat models, and developing standards for secure industrial management automation solutions. It is critical to know now how new cyber-security technology will be integrated in future production processes, she emphasized.

The Center idea is part of the sweeping federal Digital Economy program, in which cyber-security is identified as a strategic development priority in Russia for an extended eight-year period.
