Russia, China seek new cybercrime agreement
Russia and China are pushing for a new agreement to combat cybercrime, Federation Council Speaker Valentina Matviyenko said on Monday.
All the Asia Pacific Parliamentary Forum's member states are concerned by the problem, but they are split on how best to tackle it, she said.
She explained that a new initiative in this area is needed because of how much has changed since the declaration on cyber security was adopted in Budapest a decade ago.
“During these 10 years, [cyber] space has changed so greatly that Russia, China and a number of other countries insist on the preparation of a new agreement to combat cybercrime,” Matviyenko said.
“Frankly speaking, no one has proposed any effective ways, effective measures of meeting this new challenge.”
