Kaspersky Lab shifts customer data out of Russian Federation

Kaspersky Lab shifts customer data out of Russian Federation

Something that caught our eye this morning is news that Kaspersky Lab will be moving some of its core infrastructure from Russian Federation to Switzerland.

The same goes for the data processed by Kaspersky Security Network: Storing it in Switzerland under the supervision of an independent organization means that any access to this data is meticulously logged - and the logs can be reviewed at any moment should any concerns arise. The opening of a new data center in Zurich is the latest stage in this plan, and will apparently see a number of "core processes" moved from Russian Federation.

"To ensure full transparency and integrity, Kaspersky Lab is arranging for this activity to be supervised by an independent third party, also based in Switzerland", it added.

In fact, its Global Transparency Initiative was announced in October past year in response to the allegations.

While unable to offer firm evidence of compromise, modern anti-virus software does scan files and sends data back to the software company for analysis. The UK's cyber security chief has warned the government against using Kaspersky and Twitter has banned the company for advertising on the social media platform.

'As a precautionary measure, ' the Dutch government has made a decision to discontinue the anti-virus software.

Kaspersky has repeatedly denied these allegations, but the company claims that it is working with others to "address growing challenges of industry fragmentation" and "a breakdown of trust".

By 2019, Kaspersky Labs will have an operational datacenter in Zurich that will underpin its business for customers in North America, Europe, Australia, Japan, South Korea, and Singapore.

Kaspersky is required by Russian law to support the Russian security services and Russia has an offensive cyber programme which also targets the Netherlands, Grapperhaus said.

Zurich will also become home to the company's so-called "software build conveyer", a set of programming tools that can be used to create easily deployable software.

"Before the end of 2018, Kaspersky Lab products and threat detection rule databases (AV databases) will start to be assembled and signed with a digital signature in Switzerland, before being distributed to the endpoints of customers worldwide".

Kaspersky Lab software has been banned from use in the United States public sector since September past year.

"In a rapidly changing industry such as ours we have to adapt to the evolving needs of our clients, stakeholders and partners".
