The strategy aims to create conditions for safety of cyberspace and its safe use in interests of the society and the state.

Frequent cases of unsanctioned collection, storage, use, destruction and distribution of personal data, illegal financial operations and frauds are now common things in the Web, reads the document.

“The modern information technologies might be used for committing terrorist acts, specifically by hacking automatic systems of management at infrastructure objects. Politically motivated hostile activity results in attacks on government and private web sites. Various areas of management, industry, as well as defense and security sector get more and more vulnerable to sabotage and reconnaissance activity of foreign special services within cyberspace”, the strategy goes on.

The strategy, in particular, foresees creation and active implementation of policy to improve the cyberspace and reaching compatibility with respective standards of EU and NATO; shaping competitive environment in the area of digital communications and providing services related to cyber protection; involving expert potential of scientific institutions in design and development of program documents in this area; raising public awareness about safe behavior in cyber space.
