The Roscongress Foundation – a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and sporting, public, and cultural events.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, and helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 126 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 69 countries worldwide Russia also cooperates with 92 Russian public organizations and 54 regional governments.

Cybersecurity Regained: Preparing to Face Cyber Attacks

In today’s online world, every organisation is digital by default, and uses online technologies and processes as well as transfers to new principles of labour organisation. Moreover, in the connected and convergent world delivered by the Internet of Things (IoT), the digital landscape is vast, with every asset owned or used by the organisation representing another node in the network. It has never been more difficult for organisations to map the digital environment in which they operate.

Cyber attackers roam freely in this environment. They may attack large and small organisations in both the public and private sectors. Such attacks may be
either indiscriminate or highly targeted. Cyber attackers are well camouflaged: exposing the attackers requires cybersecurity defenses that identify the threat, even when it adopts the colors of its immediate environment.

Against this backdrop, organizations must consider their resilience in the context of different categories of threat:

Common attacks: These are attacks which can be carried out by unsophisticated attackers, exploiting known vulnerabilities using freely available hacking tools, with little expertise required to be successful.

Advanced attacks: Advanced attacks are typically carried out by sophisticated attackers, exploiting complex and sometimes unknown («zero-day») vulnerabilities using sophisticated tools
and methodologies.

Emerging attacks: These attacks focus on new attack vectors and vulnerabilities enabled by emerging technologies, typically carried out by more sophisticated attackers performing their own research to identify and exploit vulnerabilities. The results of the research show that companies still focus on cybersecurity issues and achieve significant progress in solving problems related to the detection and elimination of weaknesses in their protection system, but the variety and complexity of threats are of such great concern to organisations as never been before.
