Call is associated with the defense of the international cooperation of Kaspersky Lab in cybernetics and the need to prevent the risk of balkanization.
Kaspersky Lab is proud to be one of the first supporters of the "Call of Paris" for confidence and security in cyberspace, presented by the president of the Paris Peace Forum, on 12 November, President Emmanuel Macron and Foreign Affairs Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian. We would like to thank the French authorities for the launch of this project, which should contribute to improving cyber security and stability around the world due to growing distrust.
The Paris call establishes several important principles and guidelines for international cyber security. It recognizes, in particular, the responsibilities of the main players in the private sector to improve confidence, security and stability in cyberspace, and to promote initiatives to enhance the security of digital processes and products throughout the supply chain. It also promotes broad digital collaboration and multi-stakeholder engagement to build trust and capacity.
Call is associated with the defense of the international cooperation of Kaspersky Lab in cybernetics and the need to prevent the risk of balkanization. Cybercrime has no limits; and so must answer the world. We can not counterattack if we are isolated and fragmented. The Joint Intelligence Service and public-private partnerships, for example through cooperation between national police forces and cyber-security companies, need to provide greater protection for all.
The solution is also more transparent and enables interested parties to demonstrate that they can trust the cyber security industry. As part of our Global Transparency Initiative (GTI), which is designed to build trust, responsibility, security and resilience, Kaspersky Lab has already begun with this action.
As part of this GTI, on 13 November 2018 we will move part of our infrastructure to Zurich to Switzerland, where we begin to process suspicious and malicious files held by users in Europe and open the doors to our first Transparency Center. More data and processes and more regions will follow this action in the future.
In conjunction with national entities such as the French Government and our cyber security associates around the world, we will continue to strive for open cooperation and transparency in the cyber space.
Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky Lab, comments: "I am very pleased that the wheels are beginning to focus on international cooperation in the cyber space. The Paris call for confidence and security in cyberspace, announced by the French authorities, is a very positive change, given the atmosphere of growing distrust that the crisis industry This call is acknowledged by the responsibility of the private sector leaders to improve confidence, security and stability in the cyberspace. That is exactly what we have recently focused on our efforts in many of our society's initiatives: to be more transparent in order to demonstrate its reliability and, if I like, they become pioneers of the new industry standard. Without a doubt, we will continue our efforts to engage in industry and open the door in the cyber space, and we are wonderfully supported in this mission! ".
