Kaspersky Lab’s Global Transparency Initiative (GTI) is a reaffirmation of the company’s commitment to earning and maintaining the trust of its most important stakeholders: its customers. It includes a number of actionable and concrete measures to involve external independent cyber security experts and others in validating and verifying the trustworthiness of the company’s products, its internal processes and business operations, and to introduce additional accountability mechanisms by which the company can further demonstrate that it addresses any security issues promptly and thoroughly.
In the context of GTI, the storage and processing of user data from some regions, shared voluntarily with the Kaspersky Security Network, together with our software development infrastructure will all be relocated from Russia to Switzerland.
In addition, we are creating a Transparency Center in Switzerland, which will serve as a facility for trusted partners and government stakeholders to review the company’s code, software updates, and threat detection rules. p>
