The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, 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, 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.

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.

Digital Sovereignty and Cybersecurity
In terms of regulation, I would like to make an observation. Not long ago, surveys everywhere indicated that society considered regulation of the internet to be unnecessary, believing it to be a restrictive measure. Now, according to the Russian Public Opinion Research Centre, around 50% of people realize and generally understand that regulation of the internet is needed. They also view this regulation as a fairly positive thing. <…> We wanted to set out some rules to balance the interests of society, business, the state, individuals, and national security,

Digital Sovereignty and Cybersecurity
In 2020, people in Russia consumed more media content online than via traditional outlets for the first time ever. <…> When it comes to the internet, security in this case is in all likelihood a crucial, and indeed, priority issue. Sadly, we are of course referring to the fact that <…> the amount of dishonest information online has also grown, as has the number of cyberattacks. And undoubtedly, illicit, and in some cases, forbidden content has become more widespread.

The Right to Privacy in the World of Big Data
How do we actually behave in society? In accordance with ethical rules and the rules of morality, norms, rights, dignity, honour, and everything else. We have all of this offline. I think this problem has arisen online precisely because of anonymity

The Right to Privacy in the World of Big Data
People aren’t fully aware of the new space in which they find themselves because [there is no] understanding that this is a different space, that the interaction is different there, and the tracks that remain there never disappear, unlike tracks on asphalt [...] The social circle in which you inter-act is here and now. You have ten people and, again, it won’t go very far [...] Everything that [peo-ple] leave on the Internet, of course, they have a right to privacy, but they must also understand that on the Internet people probably need to behave in the same way that they would like to be treated
