Azerbaijan, Baku, Dec. 13 / Trend /

Azerbaijan will create a national centre for information security soon, Azerbaijani Deputy Communications and IT Minister Elmir Velizade told media today.

"At present, there is a practice of creating special bodies for world security information," he said.

He went on to say that their objective is to inform the public and each individual, as well as business and state bodies about the risks.

These centres are being established as a department. However, proceeding from the provisions of the ' Convention on cyber-security', there is also an establishment of national centres.

"The initiative of our ministry is to create the National Centre for Information Security in Azerbaijan," he said. "This proposal was submitted to the government. We expect that the issues relating to the structure of the centre will be resolved in the near future."
