The Central Bank of Russia is ready to include unauthorized mining jobs in the list of risks for information security subordinated to the banks. The possibility of such a step, said the Deputy head of the Department of security and information protection, Bank of Russia Artem Sychev.
“This can affect stability, and may enter into statements of Fincert as a risk factor,” said Sychev reporters on the sidelines of the Presidium of the Council of the Association of Russian banks.
Appropriate action, he said, could be taken by management when the status of crypto-currencies will be determined by Russian law.
At the moment, the bill introduced in the state Duma of the Russian Federation, where he has promised to take before the end of the spring session in June.
Unauthorized mining at the working equipment began to spread from the second half of last year along with the growing popularity of crypto currencies and their prices. In Russia, such cases were recorded in the JSC “Transneft”, the country’s largest Bank — Sberbank and even in a closed Federal nuclear center in Sarov.
These actions often violate not only company rules, but also criminal or administrative law. Florida was arrested a civil servant, working used equipment for mining cryptocurrency, and former employees of the Council of Ministers of Crimea was for such actions fined.
