Cyber Immunity for the Cyber Age
Eugene will share his vision of Cyber Immunity, a new way of developing IT systems with “innate” protection that works by separating the IT system into isolated parts and controlling the interactions between them. Kaspersky has put this vision into practice by developing their Cyber Immune operating system, KasperskyOS, which has been applied to use cases in the real world.
Eugene Kaspersky has given multiple public lectures on Cyber Immunity which have been highly acclaimed and widely covered by the press.
Eugene Kaspersky is a world-renowned cybersecurity expert and successful entrepreneur. He is a co-founder and the Chief Executive Officer of Kaspersky, 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 specialised education in cryptography helped him analyse the encrypted virus, understand its behaviour, 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 analysing more malicious programs and developing disinfection modules for them. This exotic collection of antivirus modules would eventually become the foundation for Kaspersky’s antivirus database. Today the database is one of the most comprehensive and complete collections in cybersecurity, used in detecting and preventing systems from being infected by more than 500 million malicious programs.
Further pursuing his passion for defensive technologies, in 1990 Eugene started gathering a team of like-minded enthusiast researchers to create the AVP Toolkit Pro antivirus program, which four years later was recognised by the University of Hamburg as the most effective antivirus software in the world.
Wishing to combine their successful track record of antivirus programming with their entrepreneurial vision, Eugene and his colleagues decided to establish their own independent company. In 1997 Kaspersky was founded, with Eugene heading the company’s antivirus research. In 2007 he was named Kaspersky’s CEO.
Today Kaspersky is one of the fastest-growing IT security vendors, operating in almost 200 countries and territories worldwide. The company employs more than 4,500 professionals and IT security specialists in 34 dedicated regional offices across 31 countries, and its cybersecurity technologies protect over 400 million users worldwide.
Kaspersky’s globally renowned team of experts has investigated some of the most complex and sophisticated cyberattacks ever known, including Stuxnet, Flame, and Red October. The company also cooperates extensively with INTERPOL and national police bodies to actively assist them in their fight against cybercrime.
Eugene has an Honorary Doctorate of Science from the UK’s Plymouth University. He regularly gives both lectures on cybersecurity at universities around the globe, and keynotes at leading conferences and
Eugene is both a passionate traveler and dedicated devotee of wild nature and adventure-tourism. He is also a talented photographer, which assists in his prolific chronicling of his exploits in his blog – from polar expeditions and glacier crossings to volcano scaling and jungle trekking.
