Eugene Kaspersky, Chairman and CEO
Kaspersky Lab “Global cooperation in fighting and
preventing cybercrime is essential if we want to have a safer world tomorrow.
Cyberthreats are growing both in number and sophistication, so it’s of vital
importance for the whole world to be prepared for targeted attacks from
criminals, hacktivists and even terrorists. Not long ago, things like terror
cyberattacks on critical infrastructure were something unthinkable; now we
believe they represent a tangible threat.”
“I think that this partnership with
INTERPOL will help in moving us a step closer to a more secure world, and I’m
proud to be a part of this initiative. We strongly believe that such a
public-private project brings significant benefits for the whole global
community. And Kaspersky Lab would welcome other security vendors – including
our direct competitors – to join in, as together we can make a bigger
difference, better protect the world, and more effectively fight back against
the bad guys.”
