Welcome to the participants of the IX International IT Forum and International Conference on Information Security “InfoForum-Ugra”!

Counteraction to threats and challenges of the global information society is the most crucial issue at the moment. Sustainable development, stability and security of the international community depends on solution of these issues.

Enhancement of cooperation and integration of activities of states within the framework of international organizations including SCO, BRICS, CSTO, EAEU is an important component in the State Policy of the Russian Federation in the field of information security. Hence, the practical cooperation is developing within a wide range of challenges including counteraction to use of ICT for terrorist and criminal purposes. According to the Doctrine of information security of the Russian Federation adopted last year one of priority tasks for our country is the further expansion of cooperation with international bodies and organizations including solutions of scientific and technical as well as legal issues.

The program of the Forum will gather at one platform representatives of federal governmental bodies, administrations of constituent territories of the Russian Federation, business community and international organizations to discuss topical issues in the field of information security, digital economy development, import substitution, legal regulation, formation of the uniform international telecommunication infrastructure.

I am confident that the exchange of experience and integration of efforts of the Forum and Conference participants will facilitate development of the complex approach and design of international information systems, jI wish guests and participants fruitful work.
