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.

Digital Sovereignty and Cybersecurity
4 June 2021

As the digital transformation gains momentum, the challenges it brings are beginning to impact different countries’ national interests. The way countries and corporations navigate the digital ecosystem has already significantly altered the economic and political picture, and previous roles are changing and becoming blurred. Threats to national security have taken on new forms, while competitive tools have paradoxically become threats. Import substitution in IT has gone beyond mere slogans, but is all this merely a scare tactic by the media and IT security experts? What future digitalization threats need to be considered now, and can we really counter them, and if so, how? Is it already too late? How is the digital transformation affecting the distribution of power globally, and is this beneficial to Russia’s future? What threats will people, businesses and the government have to confront as part of the digital transformation, and what is the potential impact? How is the political economy being changed in a digital world, and will information security risks affect economic stability? How can a state protect its interests in a world with blurred borders? At what point does import substitution create a risk of isolation? What do cyber-dependency «traps» look like? Do you personally feel protected in the modern digital world, and will you feel protected in the future?
