Conference Hall №2 (Level -1)
Call for Collaboration: Private Sector vs Cybercrime International Cybersecurity Congress Working discussion Global digital transformation brings a great deal of opportunity for innovation and prosperity both to the business community and to organized cybercriminal groups. Being the first to adapt to new technology, they continuously advance their attacks, costing trillions in losses to the global community. This is according to just the official statistics – in reality less than 20% of incidents are reported, as most companies do not reveal this information in fear of losing their clients. Lack of a trusted environment and solutions for uninterrupted information sharing hinders global cooperation, whilst joint response from the private sector could prevent a great number of crimes. In this inclusive workshop we are going to define current problems of international collaboration, discuss the existing initiatives and identify key areas for developing synergies between global organizations.

Russia: DNA of the New Entrepreneur Despite the rapidly changing economic situation, Russia is home to a new generation of entrepreneurs who have already achieved significant success.
This new generation of entrepreneurs is primarily characterized by their understanding of the importance of strategic change, their steady presence at the forefront of technological innovation, and their willingness to try new things. Operating in one country or one sector is no longer an option for modern businesses.
How do these new role models, who have already become successful in Russia, perceive this new reality? Can belief in one’s own ability and a sense of responsibility change not just a business, but the economy as well? How have market demands changed for entrepreneurs? Should entrepreneurs be considered an example of broad-minded individuals? How important are creativity and innovation in entrepreneurial success? What does this new generation of entrepreneurs need from society and what can they offer themselves?
