Kaspersky: we live in the Middle Ages of Internet




Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of Russian security company Kaspersky Lab, presented at the NCSC One conference in The Hague, which we are currently in the Middle Ages of Internet security. However, it would be possible to achieve an adequate level of security.

With his remark Kaspersky refers to the cycle of innovation, which also applies to security. The cycle means that there is an innovation takes place first, in this case, the development of the Internet, and use can be made of the fruits which is bearing the new development. At the same time, however, there is a need to solve problems posed by the new technology.

At this time, then it would also have the highest priority in order to solve security problems widespread. “We have to protect everything,” Kaspersky proposes in his presentation. “It is feasible to develop perfect security,” he adds. “In order to achieve this, it has to be financially unattractive in order to carry out an attack on a system.” At this time, it would still be too simple to make use of vulnerabilities to penetrate within a network. Even vulnerabilities in coffee could have serious consequences.

Kaspersky added that all operating risk. There are to identify major differences between the different versions. There are 328 million to find malicious files that are aimed at Windows, which allows the system to track a state. It is followed by Android with 16 million files and then OS X and Linux follow with 41,000 and 18,000 files respectively. According to Kaspersky is explained by the low number of OS X by the fact that it is difficult to find Mac developers. IOS has the lowest number of malicious files, it would be only in 1000.

Solutions are found according to the Russian CEO in securing existing systems and re-development of future systems, which should be based on a secure platform. For current systems is also true that regular penetration tests should be performed in addition to the introduction of air gaps . This would attack as Black Energy in Ukraine can be prevented. Kaspersky notes that the attack was resolved relatively quickly because the systems could be manually restarted. In modern power plants in Europe, such an attack, however, have much more serious consequences, because this opportunity is not.
