The UK Will Fight Agianst Russian Cyber Threats
August 24, 2015 00:57


The Unified Command of the Armed Forces of the United Kingdom is planning to recommend the government to increase the budget for countering cyber threats of the Russian and Chinese hackers tenfold.

The recommendations are described in the review of strategic defense and security received by The Sunday Times that will be published by the agency at the end of the year. If the government takes these proposals as a guide for action, 400 million pounds per year (about 625 million dollars) will be spent to develop the programs to counter the “threat from Russia and China in the next five years, the program budget is 2 billion pounds (about $ 3 billion).

It is planned that if the budget is increased, the defense agency will employ about 300 experts on cyber security who will be engaged in the development of malware - viruses, worms, trojans and spyware, not only to repel the cyber attacks of hackers, but also to conduct their own offensive cyber war.

An increase in financing and number of staff will allow the British experts to develop systems capable of disabling enemy’s communications or hacking the objects of network infrastructure, getting access to confidential information, such as e-mail or data of telephone conversations.

The creation of cyber troops - the units whose task includes ensuring the security of information networks of the state, as well as disrupting information networks of the potential enemy – is underway all around the world.

In April 2015 it was noted that the Defense Ministry will form a separate unit of information operations troops in the Crimea. In May 2014 it was reported that Russia was going to have troops of information operations designed to protect Russian military systems of control and communications.
