Police to form IT units to combat hackers
MOSCOW, February 13 - RAPSI. "The Interior Ministry will use the existing K-Unit as the basis for new forces to combat cyber crime," head of the ministry's special technological operations office Alexei Moshkov told RIA Novosti.
President Dmitry Medvedev said at the ministerial board meeting on Friday about the need to think of establishing such units "that would be new in principle and be aimed at detecting and investigating very complex crimes in terms of technology."
Answering the RIA Novosti question whether such units are going to be absolutely new Moshkov said the ministry already has a unit dealing with cyber crime - the so-called K-Unit. "The existing department will be extended," he added.
