Defending information from digital threats

Digitalisation impacts all spheres of life — and the creative industry is no exception.

This event will focus on the ways in which emerging technologies are having an impact on the arts and media. Leading experts will debate the evolution of the sector, the growth of the «experience economy», and practical solutions for how to integrate, build and manage new forms of media, culture and art.

The event will culminate in a lecture by Borislav Volodin, Chief Producer of «Star Project» and digital technologies and special effects expert for Eurovision 2009, Moscow Fashion Week, Olympic Games XXII, Formula One Russian Grand Prix and other projects.
