The Federal Service for Technical and Export Control (FSTEK) certification is required in order to sell information security systems in Russia. The regulations covering these requirements were introduced by the Russian government in July 2011. The Russian government introduced these requirements to ensure that establishments handling personal/confidential/government data are compliant with data security norms and regulations (FZ 152). The regulations detail the security requirements with which information security systems which process personal/confidential/government data need to comply. Compliance with the requirements is affirmed by a certificate granted by the Russian Government (Order of FSTEC #17, #31 and #21).
