    An agency for computer and information security has been established at
    Russia's Federal Security Service. It will be responsible for organization
    and implementation of measures to detect and prevent computer-related
    crimes. The first deputy director of the Federal Security Service, Viktor
    Cherkesov, said this at the opening of an international congress on
    telecommunications and national security in St Petersburg on Monday [16th
    November]. He pointed out that this was the first time information
    security had been ranked as equally important as political, defence and
    economic security in Russia's national security strategy.
