Sensitive Data: Transformation of the Consumption Analysis, Consulting, and Audit Market in Russia

08 Jun , 12:00–13:15
Goals and Objectives of Russia’s New Economic Cycle
Congress Centre, zone B, 2nd floor, conference hall B1

The transformation of business in Russia has had a significant impact on the research, consulting, and audit segments, which have always been companions and reliable tools for the development of big business. These industries have traditionally been represented by major global companies headquartered in the US and EU. International companies in the consulting and business audit segments left the Russian market on their own, while in the consumption research segment, regulation of the ownership and transfer of data had to be introduced at the Russian legislative level in order to avoid leaking critical economic data concerning the current state of production and consumption in the Russian economy to unfriendly states. Research, consulting, and audit companies in Russia are not only seeing new opportunities emerge to reaffirm the skills they acquired when they were part of global companies, they are also trying their hand at new markets and competing with their former head offices. How can we make sure data remains available to Russian businesses and provide domestic research companies with the opportunity to grow into independent players?
