Russia: We’re best at protecting against Russian hackers - Kaspersky *EXCLUSIVE* *PARTNER CONTENT*

Russian Federation, Saint Petersburg
June 06, 2019 at 16:04 GMT +00:00 · Published

Head of Kaspersky Lab Eugene Kaspersky talked about media coverage of “so-called Russian hackers,” saying that as a Russian company, Kaspersky is better than its competitors at providing protection against Russian hackers. He was speaking on the sidelines of the Saint Petersburg Economic Forum on Thursday.

“When I speak about so-called Russian hackers all the time I say that we have benefits from all this media pressure because we live in Russia and we are first to see Russian hackers. So, our technologies, our products they protect from Russian hackers much better than our competitors,” he said.

Talking about a recent EU commission report that concluded that it is had no evidence of “potential issues related to the use of Kaspersky Lab products” in spying, Kaspersky said that it did not affect the way the company operates and made him realise that the firm has “many friends in different countries, in different regions.”

The European Parliament passed a resolution that branded the company’s software as being “malicious” in June 2018.

The annual St. Petersburg International Economic Forum runs from Wednesday until Saturday.

The forum brings together the heads of international organisations, well-known public figures, leading academics, experts and the media.
