Russian Interior Ministry may get access to bank, telecom operators' databanks
MOSCOW. April 6 (Interfax) - The Russian Interior Ministry and the Prosecutor General's Office are considering possible access of law enforcement agencies to databanks of banks and telecom operators, Russian Deputy Interior Minister, Investigative Department head Sergei Lebedev said.
"In the present-day reality, the countering of cybercrime requires adjustment of federal laws to allow specialized divisions of law enforcement agencies to receive information from databanks of banks and telecom operators in the real-time mode," Lebedev said in an interview with Interfax.
It would be necessary to commission "an innovative software system through integration of databases of banks and telecom operators into a federal platform containing information about crimes committed in the field of information technologies," he said.
