“Current dynamics of threats and challenges to cybersecurity of critical infrastructure show that the EU does not have next 10 years for enhancing CII categorizations and specificating general regulatory guidelines for protection of critical infrastructures (CI) from cyber threats. The process should be speeded up and working transborder mechanism in the field of CI cybersecurity should be put in place immediately. This premise is relevant not only for EU, but for Russia as well, particularly since in Russia’s case within this complex process, there is no need to coordinate national approaches at the uppermost, supranational level of regulation.”  Oleg Demidov, PIR Center consultant

The latest issue of the Security Index journal is partly devoted to the development of the global nuclear energy sector and nuclear infrastructure. Against the backdrop of the oil-and-gas needle and amid the continued devaluation of the Russian currency, the Russian nuclear energy sector seems to offer what may well be the only tangible, comprehensive, and carefully thought-out answer to economic upheavals. This particular branch of the Russian high-tech sector is not a prototype but a working engine.

“The CyberModule classes at the PIR Center International School gave me a powerful professional boost and allowed me to become acquainted with leading Russian information security and internet governance experts.  I especially anticipated lectures with focus on the Runet regulation, analysis of identification on the internet and other topics; such lectures fully lived up to all expectations. I awant to note the importance of the debates and other interactive exercises, which give impetus to further independent study of these issues,” – Olga Bogdanovich, Ph.D. student in the department of Russian, Slavic and General Linguistics at Taurida National V.I.Vernadsky University.
