Sustainable Digital Dialog will be on the agenda at SPIEF 2023

In the year 2022, the whole world will see clearly that the digital space can be just as unipolar as the real world with its administrative borders.  The issue of digital sovereignty and the protection of national digital space has become more relevant than ever for most countries that are not willing to accept the existing status quo. Russia, as a holder of unique experience and expertise in preserving digital sovereignty, can lead the process of forming new technological and political alliances, offering as a solution for strengthening statehood the concept of sustainable digital dialogue as a standard for developing digitalization and a new model of cooperation in the digital environment.  

Participants in the discussion will have a look at all aspects of the protection of digital sovereignty and the development of a multipolar world system. Speakers will also discuss state control of digital platforms and the legal limits of their work, protection of users from global corporations, and barriers to international cooperation between Russia and other countries. 

The speakers of the session will be General Director of Non-Commercial Organization Dialog Vladimir Tabak, General Director of Non-Commercial Organization "Digital Economy" Sergey Plugotarenko, President of InfoWatch Group Natalia Kasperskaya, President of OpenLink Group (Serbia) Milos Jovanovic, Head of FANAP Holding International Business Center (Iran) Hossein Zarean, Deputy Chairman of VEB.RF Daniil Algulyan and Trade Representative of the Russian Federation in the Republic of Indonesia Alexander Svinin.
