SCO Countries Blocked 80,000 Web Sites

Friday 14 September 2018

BISHKEK (KirTAG) — Last years, SCO countries restricted access to 80,000 extremist and terrorist sites, a representative of the regional antiterrorist centre Chyngyz Alaybekov said at a symposium of experts on combating online extremism on Friday.

Chyngyz Alaybekov said:

In recent years, throughout the world, there has been an active proliferation of extremism and terrorism, including in the SCO countries. Thus, through the joint efforts of the SCO member states in 2017, access to 80,000 Internet resources containing 500,000 materials of a terrorist and extremist nature is restricted. With regard to administrators and moderators of these websites, 122 criminal cases have been initiated.

According to him, the imposed restrictions will not allow to completely prevent the dissemination of online information of this kind in the territory of the SCO countries:

The worldwide network is practically represented by all active terrorist groups, which in their activities use many languages of the world. The emergence of continuously improving services and resources, including the high level of encryption of transmitted data that make it difficult to identify terrorist and extremist websites on the Internet, poses not easy tasks for law enforcement agencies.

Alaybekov also noted that, for their part, the law enforcement agencies of the SCO participating countries are jointly holding exercises on cyber-terrorism, the intersection of traffic:

In the fight against online terrorism, the SCO calls on countries that are not members of the Organization to cooperate.
