During his presentation Mr.Zapolyansky will highlight the need for multi-level and proactive protection for corporate network security.
“Lately, we seem to be hearing news of complex targeted attacks more often , and such names as Stuxnet, Duqu, Flame and Gauss are known to many people. On January 14, Kaspersky Lab announced the detection of one more cyber-threat. This time it’s not just a targeted attack but an extended network of cyber-spying against diplomatic and governmental structures, research institutes, industrial companies and military agencies of various countries,” said Mr.Zapolyansky.

Only a multi-layer and proactive approach to corporate security plus a centralized management system make possible preventing data losses and protecting the enterprises from all kind of modern threats,” he continued.
Experts from Kaspersky Lab will also be available at the event to highlight the company’s latest corporate security solutions and help CIOs and IT security professionals proactively counter the surge in targeted attacks in the region.
