According to the interview of Deputy Minister of Russian Ministry of Economic Development Savva Shipov to Rossiyskaya Gazeta, only five years left for the country to introduce the digital legislation.
He also thinks that five years is a short term. If the plan isn’t realized by this period, Russia will inevitably fall behind with Western countries in technological development.
The Russian Ministry of Economic Development is currently working on those part of the digital economy program that is focused on the application of digital technologies in regulatory bodies. As reported by the civil servant, many processes don’t have a legislative base.
“It appeared that a lot of cutting-edge technologies aren’t even mentioned in laws. For instance, data created by a person on a tablet can be used for different purposes, including commercial. What is the mechanism of their protection? That’s what we are intended to develop,” claimed Deputy Minister.
Besides, he explained that the technological advance is far faster than the reaction of regulatory bodies.
“Since technologies are rocketing, we will have to establish the real digital legislation. This process has been divided into three stages. First – elimination of paperwork. Second – development of big data and blockchain application. Third – immediate change of legislation,” informs Savva Shipov.
