Securing the future of mobility
The need for built-in security

Modern cars are not just electromechanical vehicles anymore.

With each generation, they become more and more connected, incorporating new progressive intelligent technologies, making vehicles more efficient, comfortable and safe. At the same time, new technologies like remote diagnostics, telematics and infotainment bring new challenges to the industry, turning connected vehicles into cyberattack targets.

The growing risk of a vehicle being infiltrated, or having its safety, privacy and financial features violated, requires methodical, organizational and technical measures to ensure protection.

Amna Al Qubaisi
"The Flying Girl"

Amna Al Qubaisi is a motorsport sensation. Hailing from the UAE, she's the first female Emirati to race in Formula 4. At Kaspersky we believe in the power of strong female role models. We are delighted to support Amna in her quest for success.

Any obstacles can be overcome
with hard work and determination

As Amna grew up, the roar of an engine was never far away and a passion for motorsport was inevitable. By 13 years of age she had begun practising on the track and she started competing in Formula 4 at just 17 years old.

Thanks to her tenacity, skill and courage Amna has acheived a huge amount in her career already. She was the Rotax Max Challenge Champion for the 2016-17 season, the GCC Young Driver Academy winner and won the UAE Teen Sports & Fitness Awards.

These achievements show that great rewards can be acheived by women who take risks and believe in themselves - values that Kaspersky shares and that support our endorsement of "The Flying Girl".

I’ve spent most of my life behind a steering wheel and want to show that women are capable of doing what a man can do in a male-dominated sport.
Amna Al Qubaisi, Abu Dhabi Racing

Science

Cybersecurity meets science.

Intelligence. Strategy.
Sophistication.

Kaspersky is the official cybersecurity partner of FIDE and World Chess. Our support for the sport of chess stems from the values of intelligence, strategy and sophistication that we share with the sport.

A meeting
of minds

Modern-day chess is a sport that combines human intellectual excellence with mathematical accuracy and computer analysis like no other.

As the combination of human expertise and advanced computer technologies is at the core of our business philosophy, Kaspersky is proud to join FIDE and World Chess as cybersecurity partner.

The ultimate game of strategy, chess involves lots of excitement and tension. The top chess tournaments are all about human brainpower – aided today by computer technologies. Some games at the very top level are simply among the top human achievements – real masterpieces. And we’re happy to become a part of this.
Eugene Kaspersky, Chairman and CEO of Kaspersky

Supporting masters, champions and future stars

The game of chess has been played for over

1,000 years

The World Chess Championship takes place in London in

November 2018

The longest game of chess theoretically possible is

5,949 moves

True cybersecurity ensures a
bright future for world chess

Chess is one of the internet success stories of the 21st century, with hundreds of millions of players now competing regularly online. New technology has transformed the way the sport is organized, presented and played, enabling fans worldwide to use their devices to follow every move made by the elite players, streamed live from the top tournaments. And on PCs and mobile devices worldwide, tens of thousands of chess lovers are logging on and playing. In February 2017 FIDE, World Chess and Kaspersky jointly announced a cybersecurity partnership, initially embracing the two-year World Chess Championship cycle in 2017-18.

The agreement is the culmination of a growing relationship and a recognition of the vital importance of having world-class cybersecurity measures in place to protect and enhance the sport.

The partnership will include cybersecurity protection at FIDE headquarters in Switzerland, elite chess players competing in the World Chess Championship and the infrastructure of the tournament.

It also includes group cybersecurity training for players, while Kaspersky’s branding will be visible on all player tables during the matches of the 2017-18 championship.

One of Kaspersky’s first interventions was to deploy its market-leading Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) solution within FIDE and World Chess, providing continuous, high-speed analysis and protection of all online traffic, including data shared via the Amazon Web Services public cloud platform used by FIDE and World Chess. Kaspersky specialists also completed a detailed application security assessment and discovered vulnerabilities and cybersecurity threats. Kaspersky helped to prepare the plan of vulnerability remediation and make the application more secure.

Preserving mankind’s cultural
heritage & historical artefacts

Kaspersky is proud to support the preservation of the Akrotiri Bronze Age settlement on the island of Santorini that was destroyed by a volcanic eruption around 1615 BC.

The site is a precious cultural relic which could disappear if not properly explored, treated and conserved. It is our honour to help preserve the legacy of this wonderous artefact.

Understanding threats
across the centuries

The threats posed by natural disasters like this were as grave to people of the time as cyberthreats are to modern society.

As an authority on cybersecurity and threats to humanity, it's essential that we know the history and evolution of threats across the centuries and understand how people have faced and defeated them.

In Akrotiri, our desire to understand threats to humanity sees Kaspersky funding 3 fascinating projects that will explore and protect the extensive architectural remains and well-preserved wall paintings from this ancient civilization.

Our mission is building a safer world. This means not only the world of today and the world of the future, but also to understand the history and evolution of threats across the centuries.
Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky
