I’m Eugene Kaspersky, cybersecurity guy and CEO of Kaspersky Lab! Ask me Anything!
Hello, Boys and Girls of Reddit!
20 years at Kaspersky Lab, and computer security still amazes me!
My business is about protecting people and organizations from cyberthreats. People often ask me “Hey Eugene, how’s business?” And I always say “Business is good, unfortunately”.
The threat landscape is evolving fast. We increasingly depend on computerized equipment and networks - which means the risks we face in cyberspace are growing as well. Plus: cybersecurity has also become a very hot political topic.
Future of cybersecurity, cyber-warfare, cyber-tactics in an increasingly politicized world, attribution, relationship between governments and cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, Russian hackers – what do you want to know?
And of course there’s our company: we’re different, and well-known, and that comes with a price. Myths start to appear, and many people don’t know what’s fact and what’s fiction. Well, I do.
The truth matters – and I’m ready to explain whatever you want to know, about cybersecurity, our company, or even myself.
You can start posting your questions right now! And from 9.00 am EST I’ll start answering them! Ask me anything! Let’s make it fun and interesting!
The answers will be all mine (although I’ve got one of our guys here with me to post the replies.)
My personal blog
UPDATE 1:10 PM EST: Thanks for your questions folks! Especially for the tough ones. That was really interesting, but I have to go back to work now! I’ll do my best to come back later to answer questions which I couldn’t address today using my blog. Aloha!
UPDATE 2:20 PM EST OK. Answered more. Thank you all again. Have a nice day!
