Anti-Hacking Center To Monitor 20% Of Rostec Business Units By 2017
Rostec Corporation is creating within its subsidiary RT-Inform a special unit to monitor and respond to cyber threats.

Rostec's newly launched anti-hacking center RostecInform (RT Inform) to monitor 20 per cent of the Russian firm's major businesses by 2017-end, including helicopter and missile manufacturing business units.

By 2020, RT Inform plans to increase this coverage to 30 percent, Newsweek reported Monday.

The center was set up late last month and will presently report any suspected cyber crimes to Russia’s Federal Security Service (FSB). Its cyber defenses are not yet fully operational but it plans to increase its capabilities and has set to hire more staff.

Russian Rostec has launched its own anti-hacking center RostecInform (RT Inform) to deal with attempted cyberespionage attacks.

RT Inform’s director of information security Alexander Evteev said, "Rostec’s IT wing has organized its own cyberattack center to overcome issue of spying or attempted financial theft,".

Over the last year Rostec’s systems logged “thousands” of suspicious incidents, including outside attempts to install spyware or malware viruses in the company’s systems, Evteev said.

“In order for the system to work completely, the company needs to have experts in cyber defense who will be able to take the relevant measures in case of an attack,” Evteev said.
