Eugene Kaspersky, Kaspersky Lab

Eugene began his career in cybersecurity accidentally when his computer became infected with the ‘Cascade’ virus in 1989. Eugene’s specialised education in cryptography helped him analyse the encrypted virus, understand its behavior, and develop a removal tool for it. After successfully removing the virus, Eugene’s curiosity and passion for computer technology drove him to start analysing more malicious programs and developing disinfection modules for them. This exotic collection of antivirus modules would eventually become the foundation for Kaspersky Lab’s antivirus database. Today, the database is one of the most comprehensive and complete collections in cybersecurity, protecting systems from more than 100 million malicious programs.

Today, Kaspersky Lab is the world’s largest privately-held vendor of endpoint protection, operating in almost 200 countries and territories worldwide. The company employs more than 3,000 professionals and IT security specialists across 30 countries, with over 400 million users worldwide protected by its cybersecurity technologies.

Eugene has earned a number of international awards for his technological, scientific and entrepreneurial achievements. He was voted the World’s Most Powerful Security Exec by SYS-CON Media in 2011, awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Science from Plymouth University in 2012, and named one of Foreign Policy Magazine’s 2012 Top Global Thinkers for his contribution to IT security awareness on a global scale.

Presentation Title
Internet of Threats

The Internet has brought the world untold benefits. But it also brings with it a litany of risks, viewed not just as ‘the Internet’ per se, but more as the ‘Internet of Threats’.

In his presentation, Eugene Kaspersky will provide an overview of current trends in the cyber domain, splitting the Internet of Threats into three main branches – cybercrime, cyber-espionage and cyber-sabotage.

Eugene will discuss the principal threats we face today, and importantly, how they can be counteracted – naturally through law enforcement, but just as importantly through education and international cooperation, and by applying the latest protective technologies to secure critical data, industrial infrastructure, and of course the Internet itself.
