In the framework of modern digitalization policies and reforms affecting not only the information space but also the models of the leading business communities, the security of personal data and leveraging end-to-end technologies from the perspective of information security are primary objectives."

As noted by Vladimir Uzhva, Vice-Rector of MEPhI, a leading university within the INI’s structure, agreements on the use of joint network training programmes allow us to train the future of digital economies: junior experts who will counter the emerging threats in the area of national security.
