The CEO and co-founder of Kaspersky Lab, Eugene Kaspersky said a close collaboration among all involved parties in the industrial control systems is the key requirement to fight against the Cyber-Warfare, in his keynote speech at the ITU Telecom World 2012 conference.
“In the long run, cyber-warfare is where all parties lose: attackers, victims and even uninvolved observers. Unlike traditional weapons, tools used in cyber-warfare are very easy to clone and reprogram by adversaries. The most important move to survive in this environment is the development and deployment of a new, advanced security paradigm for the most critical infrastructure,” he commented.
“Our first priority is to make sure that cyber threats will not affect critical infrastructure. This goal has to be understood and embraced by all involved parties, on an international level,” he added.
