Visiting U.S. Officials to Discuss Cybersecurity

April 29, 2013 — 23:00

Russia and the U.S. aim to reach an agreement on unified cybersafety rules during a visit to Moscow by Washington officials.

White House cybersecurity coordinator Michael Daniel and coordinator for cyber issues Christopher Painter were to discuss steps toward achieving mutual trust between Moscow and Washington in cyberspace on Monday, Kommersant reported.

A U.S. State Department official told the newspaper that the talks could lead to an intergovernmental agreement on cybersecurity and the establishment of a working group on information security in the U.S.-Russian Presidential Commission.

Russia has been actively trying to establish a code of conduct in cyberspace with international organizations, such as the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe and the United Nations, but its proposals are unlikely to be adopted because the U.S. and its allies consider the current legislation adequate for dealing with all possible situations, including cyberwars, the report said.
