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.

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 Militarization of Cyberspace: How to Survive the Perfect Storm
16 June 2022
The events of 2022 have shown that digital sovereignty is one of the key factors for the survival and development of the state, society and domestic business. The existence of national controls over key information technology determines the genuine sovereignty of a country: from the ability to pay for purchases to the stability of critical information infrastructure. The rapid exit of companies and ecosystems from Russia has shown how vulnerable our cyber resilience is. Recent decades have seen the launch of a major import substitution programme, and it is in the field of cybersecurity that these processes have gone the furthest. Yet in an emergency, these efforts proved insufficient. In the face of mass attacks, not all government agencies and corporations found themselves able to repel them. There proved to be a frequent lack of elementary protections, response and recovery plans and back-up systems, and too few staff. The inevitability of this happening had been foreseen by industry experts and spoken about by regulatory authorities, but when the time came for genuine protection, much of the infrastructure and many of the decrees and recommendations proved irrelevant. Not all the programmes funded and developed by the government kicked into action at the right time. Claims by the American cyber command regarding their participation in cyber attacks carried out from within Ukraine are also alarming. What should our correct approach towards the country’s future cybersecurity be, and which conclusions can we draw from the current situation? How are we to ensure our digital sovereignty? Are we now forever destined to live in a world in which cyber conflict is the daily norm, or is there still a chance that the situation will settle down?
