The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

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 160 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

Exporting Trust: Building Safe Global Digital Infrastructure
24 May 2018

The technological future of the world depends on building robust digital infrastructure. Within a few years, all elements of the global critical infrastructure will have become digital. Nevertheless, without security guarantees, digital construction becomes a dangerous gamble. The threats go beyond losing data from a personal computer or money from a bank account. Risks involving digital infrastructure stretch as far as attacks disabling power grids, communications networks, transportation systems, or entire urban systems. Digital space has become a further dimension of real space, just like the Earth’s surface or the air, with its own infrastructure — digital bridges and roads comparable to the ones we walk on. It also contains valuable deposits in the form of data and people are already ‘mining’ digital currencies at rapid rates. The digital space of the future is attracting the interest of governments, not only because of the riches it contains, but also as a potential new battlefield. Concepts such as digital sovereignty — the right of a government to control its own digital space and ensure its security — are emerging. Is it possible to create trust zones in the digital space? What challenges lie ahead on the path to creating a secure global critical infrastructure? What can Russia offer? What partnerships are possible in this realm?
