Co-Founder & CEOKaspersky Russia
Eugene Kaspersky is a world-renowned
cybersecurity expert. He is a co-founder and the Chief Executive Officer of
Kaspersky, the world’s largest privately-held vendor of endpoint protection and
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 then develop a removal tool for it. 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 antivirus modules would eventually become the foundation for Kaspersky’s antivirus
database. In 1997 Kaspersky was founded, with Eugene heading the company’s
antivirus research. In 2007 he was named Kaspersky’s CEO.
Today Kaspersky operates in almost 200 countries
and territories, and has 34 offices in 30 countries.
