Legal basis of the digital economy in the Russian Federation


Topical issues related to the development of a digital society and the digitalization of the modern system of financial and economic activities, which led to the need for the formation and implementation of regulatory legal acts in the field of the digital economy, are revealed. The digital economy is an important component of the fourth industrial revolution. The authors set themselves the goal of considering digital technologies and new digital opportunities that have begun to appear among business entities, public authorities and administrations, as well as consumers of goods, works and services. New business models are emerging, intangible assets are being formed based on the use of big data technology. The main source of cost formation is high-speed processing of huge data arrays. All this requires certain legal regulation. General scientific and special legal methods were used as research methods. The main attention was paid to the method of analysis. The study found that basically the issues of the legal basis of the digital economy are aimed at resolving the economic security of digital platforms of the individual, business and the state in the digital economy. They are related to the protection of personal data, digital identity, protection of e-commerce, online security, financial and economic activities, etc. Of course, not all issues of the digital economy are regulated by law, which is the basis for the formation of a scientific and practical basis for analysis and legislative initiatives.
