Protection of critical infrastructure from cyber attacks has become an important priority for world leaders, says Eugene Kaspersky, chairman and CEO of Kaspersky Lab Thursday.
He will be addressing the most pressing issues facing cyber-security and how to address them during a panel session at the World Economic Forum in Davos this week.
Thomas Hendrik Ilves, President of Estonia; Jean-Paul Laborde, Executive Director of the United Nations Security Council Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate; and Bradford L. Smith, Executive Vice-President of Microsoft Corporation will also take part in the discussion taking place on January 24.
The panel will consider how it is possible to balance security and privacy in the Internet age, how to build resilient cyber defenses on a national level, and how international cooperation can bolster global cyber-security generally.
Ahead of the meeting, Eugene said: “The importance of cyber-security is growing in line with the growth of our reliance on computer networks and connected devices. WEF in Davos is an excellent opportunity for world leaders to address the most burning issues we face in cyberspace. I’ve been observing how year by year cyber threats and the ways to address them are gaining in importance on the agendas of the Davos Forums.”
