Shumilin: Information security is prioritized in Belarus’ national security system

MINSK, 3 December (BelTA) – Information security has become a priority area of Belarus’ national security system, Chairman of the State Science and Technology Committee Alexander Shumilin said as he attended an international conference on social and psychological aspects of national security on 3 December, BelTA has learned.

“Technological evolution has opened up previously inaccessible opportunities for exerting negative influence over individuals, the society and the state, and has become a source of new threats to the modern world. In Belarus, information security is becoming a priority area of the national security system,” Alexander Shumilin noted.

Shumilin: Information security is prioritized in Belarus’ national security systemHe stressed that national security is a major responsibility of the Belarusian state. “It is not by chance that national security has been indentified as one of the nine priority areas of Belarus’ scientific and technical development for 2016-2020,” Alexander Shumilin added.

For his part, Chairman of Belarus’ State Security Committee Valery Vakulchik pointed out that the current international situation with color revolutions and the growing terrorist threat requires increased attention to the social and psychological aspects of national security.

“The modern society is under a constant informational and psychological influence. The forms and methods of manipulating public opinion, lobbying for someone’s vested interests, and inciting crises are continuously upgraded. The scientific community must be looking for ways to address these challenges and threats in close cooperation with law-enforcers,” Valery Vakulchik stressed.
