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.

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 6.

G’day possums! Herewith, the penultimate post in what has turned out to be a bit of a marathon travelogue series from down-under… After lunch after our morning adventures on our last full day here, it was finally time for some retail therapy! But not in the traditional sense of mall-traipsing + inevitable food-court submission, naturally; […]

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 5.

Time to move from all things on-land to all things just off it – to the more attractive sections of coastline, for we were told the best natural charms of Kimberley lie on or near its shoreline. From Broome (the region’s ‘capital’ if you missed it earlier, also our base) the nearest bit of awesome […]

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 4.

G’day possums! Back. In the outback… The next point of call on our tour or northwestern Australia was the Tunnel Creek National Park, around half an hour’s drive from Windjana Gorge. Tunnel Creek itself runs through a natural cave cut into the limestone that was once the Devonian reef here under the ocean. Tourists come […]

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 3.

Hi all! After our first, somewhat tame forays into the wonderful wizard corner of Oz called Kimberely, it was high time we headed to the hellishly hot central part of the region – into the savanna and nearer to the Great Sandy Desert. For there’s plenty to see there too… Now, if you were to travel […]

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 2.

G’day folks! I’m back – with tales from the outback… In today’s installment, a bit of narrative, but mostly just lots of pics – both from up in the air and on the ground. The landscapes here are stupefying. Endless horizons and beaches, islands, savannah, rock formations, cliffs. There’s so much to take in… so […]

In Kimberley, Oz, I was. Part 1.

By way of a preface: Without looking on the Internet, who can tell me which is bigger: the Moon or Australia? This is the first in a mini-series of posts on Kimberley, Australia! I’d heard a lot about this place. That it’s impressively beautiful, with scenic landscapes and fantastic views. But that it’s also huge, hard to […]
