Armenian state officials spending work time in social networking sites

24 March 2010 [13:35] - TODAY.AZ
Armenian state officials log into their free online email accounts and into different chatrooms while at work, said Armenian Presidential Staff Public Relations and Information Department Chair and IT specialist Ara Saghatelyan at a press conference.

According to him, these actions puts the security of internal data at risk.

We have an issue of a lack of “information hygiene,” said Saghatelyan.

“How to explain to officials not to log into Odnoklassniki [a sort of Russian-language Facebook] from state computers?”

The state employee also added that it’s not possible to shut down in a year that which has been open for many years.

On this matter, he said, we will organize corresponding lectures in the second half of this year.
