    The Bank of Russia said Friday it issued recommendations for banks to respond to cyberattacks that investigators say are expected to begin next Monday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Russia's Federal Security Service (FSB) warned earlier in the day that foreign intelligence services planned cyberattacks on several dozen Russian cities from a Ukrainian hosting company's servers located in the Netherlands. The attacks are said to start next Monday, December 5, the FSB noted and added that it was taking measures to ensure Russia's economic and information security.

    "FinCERT [Bank of Russia's financial sector center for monitoring and responding to computer attacks] has all the information about the situation and is in constant interaction with law enforcement and security agencies, as well as with the banks. The situation is under control. The needed recommendations have been given to the banks," FinCERT told RIA Novosti.
