Russian officials refuse to iPhone 36

Courts and scandals

Once MPs banned from using the iPad to the State Duma sessions, citing the “information security considerations”, a number of legislators have decided to limit officials at all levels in the use of mobile devices that do not comply with the requirements of national security . With the appropriate suggestions made deputy Vladimir Gutenev of “United Russia” in April of this year, and recently a discussion of the proposed legislation was put in motion.

Firstly, supported Guteneva deputies Hinstein and Gorovoj. In addition, in July, their opinion on the bill rendered responsible committees – on budget and taxes, for local government, as well as labor and social policy. All three state agencies have supported the initiative and lawmakers intend to express their approval of the State Duma.

Пояснительная записка

After the adoption of the draft law officials, MPs and representatives of state-owned companies will be allowed to use mobile devices with non-certified software. According to our source in the state corporation “Rosteh” officials provide domestic gadgets installed the operating system, which will be protected from tampering. According to legislators, or iOS, or Android OS for such do not belong.

Member of the Federation Council, State Duma deputy in exercising their powers only use technical means of mobile communication systems with installed software that took place in the established order has been confirmed and certification of compliance with information security.

Transition officials with the iPhone and Android-smartphone on certified devices will be at the expense of the state budget, said the Committee on Budget and Taxation. In other words, no cost at the same time state employees will not suffer.

The Committee on the federal structure and Local Government believe that making constant use of protected devices all the officials did not make sense, since they do not all have access to classified information or information containing state secrets.

Not all civil servants substitute positions, the duties of which involves the use of information constituting a state or other secret protected by federal law. In connection with the spread of newly installed bill restrictions on all civil servants requires further study.

Whatever it was, officials occupying high positions in the Duma and public companies, in any case have exclusive use of the protected software. However, who and how it will be controlled, is still unknown.

Some experts believe that such a unanimous opinion on this bill is largely due to the sanctions, which may be subject to American corporations from Russia. In this regard, lawmakers concerned about making the national payment system instead of Visa and MasterCard, the national reservation system, and now – native operating system.

Curiously, many governors and ministers have repeatedly been seen with iPhone (the same Minister of Communications Nikolai Nikiforov constantly sends tweets with iOS-device). It is unlikely that they will be delighted by the fact that their “transplant” on other software – especially if it can not boast the same features.
