Armenia and other EEU central banks to exchange information about hackers

YEREVAN, February 19. /ARKA/. The Bank of Russia proposed that central banks of the countries, which are members of the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) set up an automated exchange of information on hacker attacks based on ISO formats, which are going to be introduced in the Russian financial market this year.

"Belarusian, Kazakh and Armenian banks, represented in Russia are actually participants of the Russian information exchange, while central banks of the five EEU member countries also inform each other of threats from time to time. This informal exchange is to be formalized," said the deputy chief of the Central Directorate of Security and Information Security of the Bank of Russia, Artem Sychev, during the 10th Ural Forum.

He said hackers often test new types of hacker attacks against Russian banks, extending them then to other countries. Earlier, the heads of the EEU central banks agreed on the exchange of information on cyber risks.

Centers for responding to computer attacks against financial and credit systems, similar to FinCERT of the Bank of Russia, were created by the national banks of Belarus and Kazakhstan. Armenia is also going to have it soon, to be followed by Kyrgyzstan. The agreement among the central banks of the five EEU member countries on the exchange of information will be signed in two to three months, according to Sychev.

Of these five countries only Russia is a member of the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST) which provides international data exchange on hackers. -0-
