Kaspersky Lab, the world’s largest privately held vendor of endpoint protection solutions, is organizing its annual CyberSecurity Summit. This year’s event focuses on “Business under Attack: Adapting to the Inevitable” and will consider how enterprises and law enforcement agencies can keep going during times of global cyber conflict. It will be held on 15 April 2015 at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Singapore, in conjunction with the Inaugural INTERPOL World 2015 conference.
The Kaspersky CyberSecurity Summit is an annual global conference bringing together top experts from the business sector, government and law enforcement agencies, as well as analytical firms and leading international media. This year’s Summit will complement INTERPOL World 2015 with a private sector view on cybersecurity issues, including expert perspectives on current trends in the cyber domain, the evolution of advanced persistent threats and their impact on business today and in the future, and how organizations can counteract cybercrime through law enforcement and international cooperation. The event will comprise panel discussions on how business leaders and law enforcement officers can support each other and implement a coordinated response, and on the essential steps organizations should take before and after a security breach. Kaspersky Lab will also present its vision of Enterprise Security.
Chairman and CEO, Kaspersky Lab
Eugene Kaspersky is a world-renowned cybersecurity expert and successful entrepreneur. He is the Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Kaspersky Lab, the world’s largest privately-held vendor of endpoint protection and cybersecurity solutions.
Eugene began his career in cybersecurity accidentally when his computer became infected with the ‘Cascade’ virus in 1989. Eugene’s specialized education in cryptography helped him analyze the encrypted virus and understand its behavior and then develop a removal tool for it. After successfully removing the virus, Eugene’s curiosity and passion for computer technology drove him to start analyzing more malicious programs and developing disinfection modules for them. This exotic collection of anti-virus 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, detecting and preventing systems from being infected by more than 100 million malicious programs.
