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 159 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.

Nothing Personal: How to Protect Personal Data From Cyberattacks
7 June 2019
17:00—18:15

According to experts, cyber security ranks third in terms of its importance to humanity, just behind climate threats. Incursions into personal business space and the theft of personal data are some of the most frequent examples of mass cyberattacks. For instance, India’s Aadhar government database was compromised in 2018, which resulted in the theft of 1.1 billion personal accounts. On this occasion, the victims were not only commercial and government structures but also citizens, who often remain defenceless in the face of cyber risks. The increased frequency of such incidents as well as their growing scale is a new source of anxiety for Internet users worldwide and demand greater attention from both corporate and government structures. What makes massive identity theft possible? How do cybercriminals use people’s personal data? How do massive data thefts affect customer loyalty and consumer behaviour? What methods can be used to protect against such attacks? What measures are companies and the Internet portals of government agencies taking to protect their customers from such attacks in Russia and around the world?
