MOSCOW, August 23 – PRIME. Committing a cybersecurity breach from the relevant register of the Russian Ministry of Digital Development may be grounds for dismissal. This was told to RIA Novosti by the head of the digital solutions department of the Polylog agency, the developer of the Polycode BPM platform, Lyudmila Bogatyreva.
Earlier, the Kommersant newspaper reported that the Ministry of Digital Transformation intends to compile a register of unacceptable cybersecurity violations by the end of 2022. First of all, we are talking about government agencies, government agencies and critical information infrastructure (CII), as they are subject to the decree on additional measures to ensure information security.
Russian President Vladimir Putin in May signed a decree on additional measures to ensure Russia’s information security. The document empowered the deputy heads of a number of bodies with the authority to ensure information security, including the detection, prevention and elimination of the consequences of computer attacks, and response to computer incidents.
“The initiative to create such a registry is the reaction of the Ministry of Digital Transformation to a sharply increased number of cyber attacks … It can be assumed that the commission of an” unacceptable violation of cybersecurity “from the registry may become the basis for dismissal,” Bogatyreva said.
According to her, this list will be useful to organizations that own critical information infrastructure facilities, primarily to heads of federal executive authorities (federal executive authorities – ed.) and companies with state participation.
