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.

Socio-humanitarian Aspects of Digitalization
We need to teach digital hygiene. Yulia Shoigu, Valentina Barabanshchikova, and I actually participated in the creation of a new Health and Wellness course for schools and talked specifically about digital hygiene, as we continue to do now

Socio-humanitarian Aspects of Digitalization
A social network is, after all, a medium that leads to disassociation. It pulls people apart into these very marginal thematic capsules where their fixations are only further reinforced

Socio-humanitarian Aspects of Digitalization
It would take just one day to shut down almost all the phones in the country. The real cyber war has yet to begin, and the more dependent we are, the greater the danger. So digital hygiene is a necessity for all of us, for the market and the state

Socio-humanitarian Aspects of Digitalization
Obviously, it's already an integral part of our lives, but what we’re talking about is a ridiculous digital obesity. It’s really overkill. And those stepping up to defend it would appear to be adults defending their own digital addictions. They can’t imagine themselves without a smartphone

The Right to Privacy in the World of Big Data
Society somehow needs to be included in this dialogue, because from what I’m seeing for now, it’s an absolute symphony. Officials say: ‘Well, we reached an agreement with business. You can do it. The main thing is that business develops, so of course we will allow it [...]’ In this regard, we need to somehow finally ask society if it wants to share data, digitize education, and so on

The Right to Privacy in the World of Big Data
For now, there is no law on the inviolability of [...] the digital identity. One actually needs to be adopted

The Right to Privacy in the World of Big Data
Data is now being stolen en masse. It is then leaked en masse after being stolen or collected be-cause some of this data is leaked from government agencies, but data leaks and breaches of priva-cy are somewhat of an ethical nuisance [...] The real danger is the manipulation of this data and the infringement of a person’s position, i.e., the detrimental use of this data

The Right to Privacy in the World of Big Data
Of course, now the state is the biggest threat to human rights, privacy, and everything else. The American state is for Americans and for the rest of the world because it manages its ecosystems, and we still have such strong excitement from digitizers that they, of course, jump over any barri-ers and cut any corners, creating these legislative sandboxes, and introducing laws and certain by-laws that directly violate both the Constitution and [Law] 152 [on personal data]. We have to do something here and somehow include society in this dialogue

The Right to Privacy in the World of Big Data
The word ‘depersonalization’ and ‘anonymization’ of data is very popular, but is actually quite a big lie [...] Nobody depersonalizes anything, and, as a rule, all companies that collect this data always have a mechanism for ‘un-depersonalization’. Moreover, there are no regulations for verifying it [...] There is no audit now of data streams, where it is actually transmitted, and in what form

Data in Service of the State and Society
Fairly trivial and unverified data – which is not much – can result in getting access to ultra intimate data that previously was restricted. <…> We are forming a certain elite of experts that know everything about everyone. I am absolutely confindent that they do not fall under travel restrictions or have appropriate clearance
