«Речь идет о том, чтобы более эффективно помогать государствам-членам ООН противодействовать терроризму в случае соответствующих запросов. Предстоит сделать так, чтобы работа бюро становилась все более заметной, соответствующей ожиданиям международного сообщества. Новое подразделение будет содействовать в том числе формированию международного права в области противодействия международному терроризму», — Владимир Воронков, заместитель генерального секретаря ООН, член Экспертного Совета ПИР-Центра

«Когда готовился Договор о ракетах средней и меньшей дальности у нас уже была принята на вооружение система, которую американцы любовно называют «Мертвая рука», у нас она называется «Периметр». И, наверно, если бы мы заявили, что при размещении ракет Pershing II в Европе, вынуждены будем установить эту систему в режим готовности, условия по составу сокращаемых сил, по количеству сокращаемых сил и средств был бы иными, не создался бы тот дисбаланс, который закреплён в нынешнем договоре. На этом этапе вполне достаточно было бы использовать информацию о возможностях такой системы. Это вовсе не значит, что надо было раскрывать ее характеристики, это совершенно не обязательно, но сам факт ее наличия можно было использовать», – заместитель директора Института США и Канады РАН Павел Золотарев.

«Я считаю, что международный опыт в виде стандартов и руководств востребован для решения проблемы кибербезопасности АЭС. Ключевыми организациями в продвижении норм кибербезопасности следует считать Международную электротехническую комиссию (МЭК) и МАГАТЭ. Для обеспечения конкурентоспособности решений по АСУ ТП АЭС необходимо не только применять международный опыт по кибербезопасности, но и активно участвовать в разработке документов в рамках этих организаций, продвигая   передовые отечественные решения на международный уровень, добиваясь лидирующих позиций», — ведущий научный сотрудник Института проблем управления имени В.А. Трапезникова РАН Виталий Промыслов.
