In 1987, Eugene graduated from the Institute of Cryptography, Telecommunications and Computer Science, where he studied mathematics, cryptography and computer technology, majoring in mathematical engineering.
Eugene began studying computer viruses after detecting the Cascade virus on his computer in October 1989. He started collecting malicious programs and disinfection modules for them. Nowadays, this database includes millions of records and is one of the most complete antivirus databases in the world.
In 1997, Eugene and his colleagues established Kaspersky Lab. Today, the company is one of the world's top four leading vendors of computer security software.
Eugene holds a large number of international and national awards for his long track record of technological, scientific and business achievements.
The Threats of the Age of Cyber-Warfare: The Kaspersky Vision
Over the past two decades the Internet has become an integral part of our daily lives. Today Internet communication is inseparably linked to the essential industrial and infrastructural systems upon which all our lives depend on in the modern world.
The discovery of the first state-sponsored malware programs - Stuxnet (2010) and Duqu (2011) - has demonstrated to us all the new capabilities that can be applied in conducting cyber-espionage, cyber-sabotage, and potentially even cyber-warfare via the Internet.
In his presentation, Eugene Kaspersky shares his vision of how to protect the Internet and its users from the use of cyber-weapons.
