October 08, 2021

On October 19, the VZ Digital platform hosted the Industrial Cybersecurity event, in which invited experts talked about their experience and successful cases.

The event was attended by:

Nikolay Pavlin — Head of Technology Department, NOVA

Sergey Korotkov — Director of the UNIDO Center for International Industrial Cooperation in the Russian Federation

Andrey Suvorov — General Director of NPO APROTECH

At the end of September, within the framework of the 76th session of the UN General Assembly, the global challenges of the new era were discussed. The global community is more aware than ever of the need for digital security.

„The Russian Federation is in favor of agreeing on the UN platform on ways to ensure international information security,“ said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov. According to the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry, in this matter, the criterion should be universal agreements that allow considering any concerns in a transparent manner, based on facts.

One of the most important tasks of UNIDO is to promote the implementation of best technological practices towards a green circular economy while maintaining a high level of safety in industrial systems. This, in turn, requires the training of appropriate personnel. These are trainings and fullscale courses, and from the point of view of infrastructural changes — the creation of specialized industrial hubs, Technoparks, the development of Smart Cities projects. All these areas are actively supported by UNIDO.

In cooperation with Aprotech, UNIDO supported the development of information security awareness courses for industrial enterprises based on the latest research. The course is aimed at acquiring competent knowledge of the aspects of cybersecurity.

For its part, UNIDO also carries out a number of trainings aimed at increasing competencies in the context of the 4th industrial revolution. Including responsible investment and energy management.
