The Center for electronic security of the Ministry of Communications and Information Technologies of Azerbaijan has started the estimation of the level of the information security of users, and also stability of infrastructures of enterprises to harmful programs, Head of the Center Faiq Farmanov told journalists on Feb. 4th.

The primary indicators are not satisfactory, which requires a special approach for solving this problem, according to Farmanov.

He mentioned that the main problem is that the majority of users do not know about harmful programs spread through networks and the absence of necessary tools such as antivirus programs to combat the spread.

The main goal of the Center is to increase the level of knowledge and skills in the area of resistance to threats. The "hotline" 1654 and the site cert.az. have been created as part of this effort. "The Centre plans to publish a monthly overview about threats and virus activity," Farmanov said.
