Ms. Voronina delivered a report on new tools to ensure a trusted environment in Russian national domains at a roundtable dedicated to the subject of the domain industry.

Her presentation was devoted to data processing protection services. Data Escrow and EBERO are independent developments for backing up the infrastructure in case of a malfunction of the registry operator’s systems.

She showed the details of an emergency response process in the event that a gTLD registry operator cannot sustain critical functions, and explained how the process is activated.

The introduction of EBERO and Data Escrow will guarantee data security if traffic providers have problems; they guarantee the fulfillment of obligations and economic efficiency, which can significantly change the underlying principles of backup in the context of multiple vulnerabilities.

Andrei Vorobyov, Director of the Coordination Center for TLD .RU/.РФ, also spoke at the roundtable. He talked about the principles of working with the expert community to ensure the legitimate use of domain names. Vladimir Gorzhaltsan, First Deputy Director of СС TLD .RU/.РФ, spoke about statistical methods of exploring the state of the internet industry. Executive Director of the Association of Documentary Telecommunications Alexander Ivanyuk presented a Russian project to develop a typical module for studying internet technologies, and Director General of the Technical Center of Internet Alexei Rogdev listed the basic principles for maintaining stability, security and fail-safety of Russian domain zones.
