Our People are our Everything: Training and Development of Digital Economy and Cybersecurity Regulation Specialists
29 June 2022
10:00—11:30
It is the task of the government to acknowledge and protect people’s digital rights from possible infringements, while upholding identity security, public safety, and state security as set out in legislation and the constitution. Most people deal with aspects to do with digital law in their day-to-day lives. However, when they enter a legal arrangement, they usually do so unconsciously, despite the fact that such arrangements concern a great many actions online, as well as the provision of digital services. Cybercrime, privacy infringements, and other issues are all on the rise as a result of many services and opportunities moving to the digital realm. It is therefore of great importance that efforts are made to educate people and raise awareness of digital law and digital transformation. In addition, lawyers need to be trained in issues surrounding IT.
Main topics for discussion:
• Tools to help educate people and raise awareness of digital rights and digital transformation. Tools to help train lawyers in IT-related issues.
• Building a pool of partner organizations to provide informational and organizational support in efforts to raise awareness of digital law in Russia.
• Organizing events where specialists and professionals can hold discussions in an attempt to identify new experts on the topic and to raise awareness of digital law.
• Training digital law specialists at universities and subsidizing study programmes.
• Raising awareness of institutions acting to protect digital rights (such as the Arbitration Court for Protecting Digital Rights operating under the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs).
• Training lawyers specializing in the digital realm and acting as a line of defence against cybercrime.
