Management Team

Eugene Kaspersky

Chief Executive Officer and Chairman

Eugene began his career in cybersecurity accidentally - when his computer became infected with the ‘Cascade’ virus, in 1989. Eugene’s specialized education in cryptography helped him analyze the encrypted virus, understand its behavior and develop a removal tool for it. After successfully removing the virus, Eugene’s curiosity and passion for computer technology drove him to start analyzing more malicious programs and developing disinfection modules for them. This exotic collection of antivirus modules would eventually become the foundation for Kaspersky Lab’s antivirus database. Today, the database is one of the most comprehensive collections in cybersecurity - protecting systems from more than 100 million malicious programs.
