Azerbaijan, Baku, Aug.6 / Trend, H.Veliyev /

A national information security center will open in Azerbaijan by late 2012, Azerbaijani Deputy Communications and IT Minister Elmir Valizade told journalists on Monday.

"We can say work is in the final stage. The coordination process is
underway," Valizade said.

The center will inform society, businesses and government agencies about emerging risks. The majority of such structures are institutional, but based on the provisions of the convention on cyber security, it is also possible to create national information security centers.
