Head of the Directorate for Information Technologies Aleksey Khromov participated in the 10th Eurasian Forum on information security and information interaction "INFOFORUM-Eurasia/CRIMEA" that took place in Sevastopol.

The purpose of the forum was to address the issues regarding information security during the integration of the Crimean Federal District into the Russian Federation. At the moment, information security issues are very relevant in Sevastopol, as both Sevastopol and Crimea use communication channels belonging to Ukraine. In this regard, one of the main objectives is to ensure the availability, integrity and confidentiality of the transmitted information.

Aleksey Khromov took part in a plenary session and two thematic sections of the forum. During the section on "Global challenges and threats to information security. Ensuring information sovereignty of the Russian Federation. Internet security", experts talked about the priorities in solving problems related to information security.

Mr. Khromov presented a final report during the section "Electronic government and secure electronic services" and suggested that 3 provisions be included in the forum’s resolution. Among them were: the elimination of insufficiently motivated restrictions in the regulatory framework, improving the efficiency for the process of equipping Crimea and Sevastopol with modern computer equipment, telecommunications and software, as well as providing electronic services at the federal and regional levels. According to the expert, these issues can be solved by creating interagency coordination centers.

"INFOFORUM-Eurasia/CRIMEA" was attended by representatives of 20 subjects of the Russian Federation and for the first time, the IT-platform brought together 120 authorities representatives of the Sevastopol and the Crimean Republic.
