Azerbaijan considers the issue of society’s information security important, Head of Sector at the Azerbaijani Presidential Administration’s Social and Political Affairs Department said.

“On one hand, expanding the virtual space facilitates is the process of bringing the truth to the world community about the country and its people and exercising their right to freedom of expression,” Vugar Aliyev said. “On the other hand, it leads to the disruption of the national information sphere, negative impact on the national system of values, and influence of foreign circles on society and political processes.”

Aliyev made the remarks at the “New Media and New Challenges” conference in Baku on May 27.

“The negative and positive aspects of the global information sphere also make the country’s information policy and the society’s information security important,” he said.

“Using modern standards, launching a national satellite into orbit, upgrading the infrastructure, and preparing and implementing certain state programs have increased the possibilities of new media and serve its all-around development,” he noted.

Aliyev added that online media outlets are seriously competing with traditional media to obtain and disseminate information, even preceding them in some areas.

The high-ranking official went on to speak about social networks, saying, “At the same time, along with creating opportunities for free expression of opinion, social networks are uncontrolled and do not meet the minimum requirements of the liability criteria,” he said.

“We should all agree that Facebook can reflect negative actions, uncharacteristic of professional media. Insults, lie, and slander have become a commonplace in this social network,” he stressed.
