Kaspersky has announced the completion of major Global Transparency Initiative milestones by moving data storage and processing activities from Russia to Switzerland and by opening the company’s fifth Transparency Centre in North America. Alongside increased transparency, the company calls for more collaborative efforts to enhance the security and integrity of modern software products.
It’s been three years since Kaspersky, a leading global cybersecurity company, announced its Global Transparency Initiative (GTI) to pioneer a new approach for the cybersecurity industry based on greater transparency and accountability. The aim was to engage the broader cybersecurity community and stakeholders in validating and verifying the trustworthiness of its products, internal processes and business operations. As such, the company has provided the source code of its software for independent reviews, undertaken a number of third-party assessments (including the SOC2 audit by a Big Four company) and has attained ISO27001 certification for its data services. Kaspersky has also moved its data processing infrastructure from Russia to Switzerland and has announced the successful completion of this transition.
The relocation of data processing and data storage, announced in November 2018, has been fully completed. In addition to Europe, the United States and Canada, Kaspersky has also relocated data storage and processing for a number of Asia-Pacific countries.Click below to share this article
