MOSCOW, October 12 (RIA Novosti) - The National Anti-Terror Committee (NAK) is stepping up measures against information technology crimes, NAK said on Tuesday.

At a meeting in Moscow, NAK drew up measures to "prevent and put an end to illegal infringement of the activities of information and telecommunications networks that could lead to technological and environmental catastrophes," the statement said.

Such infringement could put Russia's national security at risk, it added.

The Russian government has named the fight against terrorism one of its key priorities, following a growing increase in militant attacks in the volatile North Caucasus region.
