Valentin Petrov: The Doctrine of information security is based on the principles of observance of human and civil rights and freedoms
The Doctrine of information security is based primarily on the principles of observance of human and civil rights and freedoms, respect for human dignity, protection of his or her legitimate interests and the legitimate interests of society and the state, as well as on ensuring sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.
This was stressed by Head of Service on Issues of Information Security of the Staff of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Valentin Petrov.
"Regrettably, the information space is not just one of the dimensions where the hybrid aggression of the Russian Federation against Ukraine is carried out, but also the place where one of the decisive battles for Ukraine, for its democratic and free future, is conducted", - he said.
Undoubtedly, Mr. Petrov pointed out, in this battle, the state has to ensure the balance between the full compliance with human rights to freedom of assembly and dissemination of information, the right to social security, the protection of an individual from public consciousness manipulative technologies. "It is impossible to be victorious in the information war without building a system of protection and information hygiene, and international experience provides evidence of this", - the Head of Service on Issues of Information Security of the NSDC Staff emphasized.
"The very fact that the Kremlin's "fifth column" has intensified its activities demonstrates that the Doctrine reasonably identified the most vulnerable points of our information defense having suggested efficient measures to protect it", - Valentin Petrov noticed.
At the same time, he pointed out that the Doctrine is not a document of direct action. "Its goal is to consolidate and summarize the set of views on the state information security to be considered in the formulation and implementation of the state information policy", - Mr. Petrov highlighted.
