NOTA BENE

Notes, comment and buzz from Eugene Kaspersky – Official Blog

About

ek-about-me-en-7

Hi, I’m Eugene Kaspersky, Chairman and CEO of Kaspersky Lab. For the last quarter of a century my life’s been dedicated to computer security, particularly the fight against malware in all its forms.

I’m based in Moscow, have four kids, like skiing, and take every opportunity when not on the road to indulge myself with a few days in the Alps. Despite our alliance with Ferrari, I feed my passion for fast driving with a BMW M3 – alas, roads in Moscow still leave much to be desired and are hardly suitable for Italian supercars!

This blog brings you my personal opinions on current topics. Here you’ll find me airing my thoughts on recent IT security news and industry development. Well, at least, that was initially the plan…

However, my main intention here is to engage in a broader conversation with you and discuss other things that sometimes fall beyond boring security issues. I travel a lot, meet a lot of people from a lot of different countries, and give many public speeches. So I believe broader and more relaxed interaction based on my varied experiences will be more interesting, less stuffy, and provide better insights.

At the same time, I’d encourage you to check out the security-related blogs from the top KL experts at Securelist. This is a premium source of proven expertise coming first hand from the people I trust.

Disclaimer! My opinions don’t necessarily represent those of Kaspersky Lab! I just hope they’ll provide you with plenty of ideas as a starting point for decent discussion!

You can find more of my biographical details here.

Hi-res photos are here.

Internet on a jet.

Back on the road again… Rather – up in the air. So I continue one of my fave, recurring themes – flying and planes and all that. 2015 kicked off with some serious avia action for me: I’m already on my 30th flight, having been up in the skies 130+ hours. Not that I’m complaining – […]

A hotel on the banks of the Colorado. Woh!

There are a great many beautiful and unusual towns and cities in the world, there are volcanoes, there are valleys and canyons, and islands and lakes. There are also of course rivers: loads of them – all different. There are the grandiose, like the super-wide Amazon with its adjacent jungles, anacondas, piranhas, crocodiles and other […]

Hold on tight! In an off-road vehicle – off-road in Utah.

A few words about the vehicle that transported us about in Utah. And let’s not forget the super chauffeur… Here she is, a classic of the genre, giving the Land Rover Defender a run for its money: the Toyota Land Cruiser. Quite an old one at that. Only demonstrates the ruggedness of this remarkable 4×4: […]

A quick guide to Utah arches.

Why this national park is called the Arches is a rhetorical question. But if you haven’t been following this mini-on-the-road series from Utah, then read this. Yes, you want huge natural rock arches – you need to come here. There’s just so much awesome archness here. Wikipedia says there are as many as 2000 here, […]

U tire of Utah’s canyons? Not possible!

The red rocks of Utah – a simply captivating sight; from the outside, that is, which is what we checked out yesterday. Today it was time we had a look at all this from the inside. So off we headed to the Arches National Park‘s Fiery Furnace rocky massif. This is what we saw…

The Utah Saints: Crimson columns and massive mushrooms.

Since the previous day my brain had been variously boggling and boiling. This was eased a little by steam being emitted from said boggling and boiling brain out via my camera, but that alleviation process then went too far, leading poor brain into a state of half dehydration. The diagnosis sounds like this: I’ve (finally) […]
