The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of nationwide and international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, youth, 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, 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 5,000 people working in Russia and abroad.

The Foundation works alongside various UN departments and other international organizations, and is building multi-format cooperation with 173 economic partners, including industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions, financial, trade, and business associations from 78 countries worldwide, and 179 Russian public organizations, federal and legislative agencies, and federal subjects.

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.

The Digital World. The Era of Quantum Security
16 June 2022
14:45—15:45
In addition to the imminent benefits, quantum technology also poses some threats. With the advent of the scalable quantum computer, ubiquitous data protection tools will become vulnerable, and the vast majority of information will be accessible to attackers.
Over the past few decades, research has been actively pursued to develop new information security technologies capable of withstanding the impending quantum threats. In 2022, several international events have moved this issue from the realm of debate to the realm of practicality. At the last Security Council meeting, the Russian President particularly emphasised the importance and need to improve the resilience and security of the state’s information infrastructure. He proposed to create a state information protection system in Russia to minimize the risks of leaks of confidential information and personal data of citizens. At the current stage of technological development, it is already becoming impossible to realize this project without applying the laws of quantum physics. Two large-scale programmes to introduce a new generation of cryptographic algorithms that are resistant to attacks by quantum computers have been announced globally. The completion of testing of quantum-proof network was reported by the NATO Cyber Security Centre. In addition, US President Joe Biden signed a national security memorandum asking government agencies to implement measures that would mitigate risks posed by quantum computers to US national cyber security, envisioning the transition of US information infrastructure to quantum-proof solutions.
Russia is also actively working on quantum data protection technologies to standardize quantum-resistant algorithms.
Is the transition to more action on the horizon? What is the maturity of such technologies in Russia? How can businesses and the state ensure effective protection of information infrastructure?
