Opinion: Information security documents in Belarus and CIS interrelated yet totally different

MOSCOW, 15 March (BelTA) – The documents on information security in Belarus and the CIS are interrelated yet totally different, Director of the Belarusian Institute for Strategic Studies Oleg Makarov told BelTA while commenting on the CIS Information Security Strategy approved by the CIS Economic Council in Moscow on 15 March and Belarus’ draft information security concept considered by the Belarusian Security Council this week.

“Though interrelated, the documents are completely different both in form and also in presentation. The Belarusian document is the concept of information security while the CIS document is a strategy of ensuring information security. The points of emphasis are totally different,” Oleg Makarov noted.

“The documents apply different scientific approaches from the standpoint of methodology,” Oleg Makarov said. Yet he added that the two documents are interrelated. “We see similarity in the conceptual construct. They use such a concept as ‘information sovereignty’. Both documents prioritize the protection of individual’s rights. Despite the differences in form, the documents are comparable ideologically, so to speak,” Oleg Makarov noted.
