Belarus' information shield to become more reliable

Belarus' "information shield" will become more reliable. Today, information wars and fight against this kind of attacks is one of the priorities for intelligence services around the world. It means not only the protection of national interests, but also combating those who recruit youth to terrorist organizations.

In the light of recent global trends, intelligence agencies are working "ahead of the curve". Experts admit that among the modern extremists are not only the "infantry", but people who own advanced technologies. Therefore, preparation of specialists who could fight a new kind of "smart soldiers" is becoming a task of national security.

Marianna Kochubei, senior inspector for special assignments, CIS Anti-Terrorist Center:
The work of the State Security Committee of Belarus, I believe, is at a very high level of quality. They have learned to successfully oppose the archaic and traditional technologies connected with terrorist activity. Therefore Belarus does not have attacks. But we still need to improve our work. First of all, this concerns information warfare.
