Last week, Kaspersky Lab invited us to their security conference on the sidelines of INTERPOL World 2017. Titled as the Palaeontology of Cybersecurity, it focused on Kaspersky Lab’s efforts and abilities in dissecting malware and cyberattacks and tracing their sources.
It was a riveting look at how they tackled the thousands of cybersecurity threats that are active every day – from those that hit the news, like WannaCry and NotPetya, to those that continue to quietly cause damage and losses to consumers and corporations alike.
We also had the opportunity to hear from Eugene Kaspersky himself, as well as Jason Wells, an ex-military intelligence officer, who now helps companies tackle electronic surveillance and corporate espionage. Finally, we had a whole hour to grill them all on anything we wanted!
A lot was covered during the conference, so we will split them up into multiple articles :
