Data-Security Expert Kaspersky: There Is No More Privacy
Wall Street Journal, by Paul Sonne
MOSCOW—A month after National Security Agency leaker Edward Snowden
arrived at the airport here, Russian computer-security expert Eugene Kaspersky
fielded a question on the newly-exposed U.S. surveillance programs at his
office down the road.
"There is no more privacy," the 47-year-old CEO
of antivirus software firm Kaspersky Lab told a group of journalists.
Mr. Kaspersky said consumers are paying the price of new
technologies with their privacy, and argued that it is hard to tell whether the
programs Mr. Snowden exposed are justifiable, because it is unclear how many
lives they saved. "If you want to stay private, I know some places in
Siberia," he joked.
