"The development of the new Doctrine of Information Security of the Russian Federation has begun. The actualization of approaches to protect national interests in the information sphere, considering today's reality, will be the basis of the project of the new redaction of the Doctrine," the Security Council said in a statement.
Last month, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the country's Federal Security Service foiled some 74 million cyberattacks against official Russian structures and government bodies online in 2014.
Attacks peaked during the Sochi Winter Olympics in February, the Crimean referendum in March and the outbreak of the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine in April, according to Patrushev.
The current Doctrine of Information Security was enacted by Russian President Vladimir Putin in September 2000.
