Speaking last Tuesday at the Federation Council at a seminar-meeting devoted to the issues of countering threats in the digital environment, I. Rukavishnikova explained that in these lessons children will have the opportunity to learn more about the rules of behavior on the Web, especially those related to handling their personal data.
The head of the Federation Council committee, in particular, said: "It is proposed to introduce hours to study the issues of careful handling of your personal data, how to protect yourself on the Internet, what information should not be placed there, and so on."
She also believes that digital literacy classes should also be held for students, since today any profession requires an employee to have the knowledge and skills to work safely in a digital environment.
I. Rukavishnikova drew attention to the fact that people, leaving their personal data on various Internet resources, often do not know how to revoke permission to use them. In her opinion, it is imperative to explain to the citizens of our country how to act in this situation.
The legislation of the Russian Federation, according to the senator, is already moving towards the creation of clear and understandable rules in this area. In addition, in the State Duma of the Russian Federation, a draft law passed the second reading, which establishes the procedure and conditions for the processing of publicly available personal data, as well as the right of the subject of personal data to demand their removal from public sources.
It is worth recalling that earlier Igor Lyapunov, vice president of Rostelecom for information security, spoke about the increase in schoolchildren with the darknet - a hidden anonymous network, connections of which are established only between trusted users using data encryption.
“Previously, schoolchildren were dismantled in the courtyards, but now, if the boys did not share something, one another hacks into a page on VKontakte. Moreover, if an ordinary employer cannot hire a student, then the darknet will easily accept it. Parents do not mind that the child is fond of the computer, and do not know what he is actually doing, and schoolchildren like the way it sounds - "hacker!" - explained the expert.
However, young people often do not realize the possible consequences of such activities, therefore, according to I. Lyapunov, it is necessary to educate adolescents in this area and orient them professionally in the right direction. Education and correct professional orientation of adolescents becomes important. At the same time, he stressed that interest in digital technologies can be directed in a positive direction.
