"Digitech is the only platform where IT companies can communicate with the business, and present their solutions to them," he said. In addition, A. Yesayan said that on the second day of the forum, it is planned to hold closed discussions, where participants will consider the format of interaction between high technologies and the military-industrial complex, in which the defense minister and representatives of interested parties will participate.

Karpat Vardanyan, the Executive Director of the Joint Control Commission of the Union of Civil Aviation, said that the Union had proposed to the Prime Minister that a separate committee for technological modernization of the country should be established, which provides for a comprehensive approach and covers such spheres as military industry, business, infrastructure, education.

"2 years ago there was a severe impact of cryptoviruses, in 2017 - the banking system suffered. This is not one precedent, and not two. I hope that within the framework of closed discussions we will be able to understand what decisions must be taken in the field of information security," he stressed.
