Rogozin to tell Russian Security Council about information security on Thursday - Peskov

MOSCOW. Oct 26 (Interfax) - The Thursday meeting of the Russian Security Council will be dedicated to general aspects of information security rather than particular cases of bomb threats made over the phone or hacking attacks, presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.

"Of course, the Security Council does not analyze cases at its meetings; this is an area of experts. It [the Security Council meeting] is for conferring on conceptual issues," Peskov said.

"The primary objective is to ensure the smooth operation of all communication and information systems. In fact, this is the main task," he said.

This will not just be a briefing session, but "a full Security Council meeting," he said.

Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin will be the main speaker and will address information security in Russia and ways to strengthen it.
