In the Russian army to 2014 year appears cyber command

20

Next year, cyber command will be created in the Russian Armed Forces to conduct operations in the virtual space. According to Interfax, the new structure is designed to counter virtual threats in peacetime and wartime.


“Within the framework of the Advanced Research Fund, as well as in the relevant structures of the military department, a program is being developed related to the formation of cyber command, its functional duties and the number of personnel,” said the agency’s source familiar with the situation.

Initially, cyber command is likely to function as the main directorate of the Ministry of Defense and act as part of the aerospace defense forces.

For the first time, the need to create this type of troops was announced in March by 2012, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin. He reported on the preparation of documentation for this “technical predator”.

As part of the US military, cyber command has been operating "on a temporary basis" since 2007. Its headquarters is located at an air force base in Louisiana. From there all operations are carried out in the virtual space.

At the end of July this year, President Vladimir Putin signed the "Fundamentals of the state policy of the Russian Federation in the field of international information security for the period up to 2020 of the year". This was a kind of response to the “International Strategy for Cyberspace Action” adopted in 2011 by the United States. The United States equated computer sabotage with traditional hostilities, reserving the right to respond to them by all means.

The Russian information security doctrine, signed by the president back in the 2000 year, in turn, also needed to be updated. In July, speaking at a meeting of the Security Council, Putin said that the importance of information technology is growing in the military sphere. The head of state set the task to increase the level of protection of the relevant infrastructure from cyber attacks.

According to the president, Russia should be ready to effectively fend off threats in the information space and increase the level of protection of the relevant infrastructure, first of all, the information systems of strategic facilities.

    Not a single cyber command will protect against threats any infrastructure built on imported equipment.

      Why not defend it, cyber command is more suitable as a weapon of attack, for example, to incite an interracial war between whites and blacks in the United States, up to the civil war, a lot of which can be thrown out using such a system. Foreign-made equipment (USA, CHINA, JAPAN, etc.) In any case, where it is military in nature, the software is checked for vulnerability and black codes. So don’t need it here)

        Any more or less serious equipment is integrated with the manufacturer's system and it is not difficult for him, well, at least put it at the right time.
        Of course, in defense products such risks are minimized, but the entire infrastructure around them and for combining them as a whole is built exclusively on imported solutions.

    Are you sure that imported equipment at strategic facilities? In your place I would not be so sure!

      All communications in Russia are built on imported equipment. All computers in Russia are imported, imported software on any computer. What cyber command can track all this and prevent a possible threat?

    We can create this cyber command, but find and train cyber war here is the task! Cyber ​​war has long been going on in information networks ... Only now it looks like a Makhnovism.

      Let everyone continue to think that we have only a command and individual hacker-lovers. And what exactly do and how much, you can not say - let them guess.
      In this regard, it is better to take an example from the Chinese or from the Israelis: they do not advertise or comment, but are engaged in business.

    It’s high time to counteract all threats, and for strategic facilities there should be a separate closed network created !!!

      It was from closed military networks that the Internet once began. And now there are also such closed networks, only today in open networks such traffic is generated that it is sometimes easier and safer to use the Internet than closed networks. Therefore, such money is poured into the prism of the Americans.

    If someone does not understand. This means that Russia has enough resources to conduct WAR in this area and has grown out of GRU “pants”. This is a plus P.

    Now they will play war games on the network?
    Moreover, the command appeared, and not the unit. That is, the unit was and the commander was not.
    I understand someone sucked the post?

    I wonder who will go to serve in these cyber forces? it doesn’t seem to work out on appeal, but little money is paid on the contract. Maybe Snowden will be given the title and sent to teach?)))

    Well, comparable to the Chinese largest hardly, at least in real life, even in virtual. But in terms of quality, our students could have come first in programming. Only they are probably bought in the summer by ITish firms.

    And it is quite possible that Snowden will teach how to counter cyber state attacks, because he knows what and where is growing))
