In support of research/development in infosecurity in the Republic of Moldova, the PINFOSEC polygon is being implemented. The polygon will create the conditions and provide the necessary infrastructure and tools for conducting experiments/research/adaptations/developments, based on which practical recommendations will be elaborated and differentiated infomatics security (i- security) solutions will be proposed, taking into account the particularities of the republic. PINFOSEC concept defines basic objectives, determines functional structure, describes technological platform (SECIM), outlines SECIM modules and formulates principles of creating the system of infosecurity models (SIMOSI) for application as needed. SECIM modules will be implemented within the SIMOSI system, through simulations their characteristics will be researched, and further the afferent, depending on the case, i-security solutions will be developed to strengthen performances. Within PINFOSEC infospace, the INFOSEC website will be integrated. Its aim is to inform public administration institutions, economic agents, organizations and population about dangers, vulnerabilities, incidents, means and necessary actions of i-security and of other important aspects in the field. To begin with, the results of an incipient assessment of i-security state in enterprises, organizations, institutions (EOIs) are at the base of works within the polygon. These results are obtained by an online survey using 24 indicators. According to this survey, the percentage of EOIs with high i-security performance for EOIs with over 500 employees is about twice as high as that for EOIs with up to 10 employees. It is estimated that PINFOSEC will significantly contribute to creating the necessary conditions for improving the i-security of EOIs and of population in the republic.
