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.

Partnership Against the Pandemic: Anti-Crisis Strategies in Medicine
Another challenge that cannot be ignored is the fact that the pandemic gave birth to a cyberpandemic. The pandemic actually spawned new types of crimes committed by hackers and cyber fraudsters. Were we prepared for this? The answer is no… It seems to me that our work in building awareness… needs improving. It is important that this work is carried out at all levels, whether at state institutions, in the media, or at the level of internal communications at various companies

Partnership Against the Pandemic: Anti-Crisis Strategies in Medicine
We were all very much united around a new and unique mode of interaction between all branches of government, all companies and organizations during those days in March a year and a half ago. For a few days in March, we all came together and very quickly identified the best approaches to cooperation and interaction with the scientific community, the Ministry of Health, and healthcare departments throughout the Russian Federation

Digital Sovereignty and Cybersecurity
We have spoken about ecosystems and understand that as a rule, they are very rapidly built vertically, coalescing around a single motherboard. Together with our colleagues from Rostelecom, we have questioned whether we could build horizontal ecosystems in various sectors with some kind of unifying elements, such as data. This would be with the view to increasing value and increasing the profits of various industry-specific companies, while still having some form of unified whole. We very well understand that the process of coordination and agreement is a very complex and long one. However, it seems to me that tools provided by the state could be employed to make it easier to reach all these agreements,

Digital Sovereignty and Cybersecurity
I think that today we all need to not just reflect on the term ‘import substitution’ – which to a degree carries different connotations – but actually develop products ourselves, and not be afraid. We embarked on this path four years ago. Over these four years, we have created at least five cybersecurity platforms which probably cover around 80% of Sberbank’s cybersecurity tech solutions,

Digital Sovereignty and Cybersecurity
Today, many companies in Russia are building their own ecosystems. They are developing them, as they provide new opportunities to attain new heights, achieve unique results, and come up with new products and services in a relatively short space of time. This form of agility is attracting all players, as various startups can benefit from rapid results. However, this is accompanied by a new level of risk. It is here that the biggest shadow areas lurk, it seems to me. <…> That is why companies that develop ecosystems naturally invariably prioritize reliability when it comes to all their security infrastructure rules and mechanisms,

Digital Borders: How to Build Protection in a Transparent World?
It frequently happens so that each company has its own standards [for data management and security, – Ed.]. And this is a problem. We need to get together and develop common standards.
