Washington will practice the imposition of sanctions in response to cyber attacks.


The White house of the United States issued the first governmental guidance for responding to large-scale cyber attacks. The Directive includes five threat levels, where the most dangerous are contributing to destabilization in the country and attacks on critical infrastructure or the U.S. government. This is reported by Reuters correspondent.

According to the adviser of the US President Barack Obama's national security Lisa Monaco (Lisa Monaco), cyber threats every day have become more frequent and severe, therefore, the Directive spelled out what to do in case of a cyber attack and who to contact for help.

In turn, some officials noted that in the manual there is no specific paragraph about the retaliation of Washington in the case of large-scale cyber attacks on financial or energy systems. Also not specified in which cases cyber attacks can cause for a major military offensive. According to White house officials, to prescribe the exact response actions of Washington in the case of cyber attacks is very difficult task, as possible start an all-out cyberwar.

As the main kiberprestupnikov Monaco calls Russia and China, but Iran and North Korea may also perform devastating attacks. We will remind, the representatives of the US Democratic party accused the presidential candidate of the Republican party of Donald trump in cooperation with the Russian special services for victory in the upcoming elections. According to Democrats, that Russian hackers are behind the hacking of the servers of the National Committee of the democratic party and used the stolen e-mails to promote the campaign trump. The Russian government has called the accusation "absurd."

Even in 2015, Obama signed the decree about introduction of sanctions in response to cyber attacks. This practice was never used, so in the new leadership sistematizirovat existing rules that would allow Washington to make good use of the government decree on sanctions against those who attack the infrastructure of the United States.
