Kaspersky advances its Global Transparency Initiative with the launch of a Cyber Capacity Building Program and virtual availability of its Transparency Center services. The dedicated training program provides product security evaluation knowledge to businesses, government organisations and academic institutions in need of IT infrastructure security assessment skills. Remote admission to the company’s Transparency Centers, allows for continued access to information about its internal security practices and technologies.

With digitisation rapidly increasing, a robust IT infrastructure is vital for the smooth integration and running of various software and hardware platforms, as well as efficiency of operations. At the same time, an organisation’s IT infrastructure can be subject to various cybersecurity related risks, making cyber-resilience crucial. As part of global supply chains and/or critical infrastructure networks, different components of the IT infrastructure can be compromised, causing harm to public security as well as economic and social wellbeing. Luckily there are ways in which organisations can evaluate and ensure the security and integrity of these elements.

To help, Kaspersky developed a Cyber Capacity Building Program – dedicated training on product security evaluation. Available in online and offline formats, it is designed to help companies, government organisations and academia develop practical tools and knowledge for security assessments. Only then can they ensure the security and integrity of third-party applications that are integrated into their IT infrastructures and networks. Through the program, organisations are able to identify cybersecurity risks, as well as manage and mitigate them.

“Since opening our Transparency Centers, we have developed wide practice of product security evaluation, and we see that just communicating a company’s readiness to provide its source code for a review is not enough. It requires a certain level of specific IT security knowledge from our partners to carry out an assessment and to have a full experience of what is being offered within the transparency policy. Our Cyber Capacity Building Program will allow organisations, both businesses and government, as well as academic institutions, to develop skills for proper security assessments of the products they use and thus help enhance cyber-resilience of their own networks," commented Oleg Abdurashitov, Head of Public Affairs at Kaspersky.

"Kaspersky took it in his stride and did a magnificent job in establishing the GTI in Switzerland. Our CEO, Eugene Kaspersky believes that GTI is the most critical way to gain trust and is proud to be the first to offer such transparency," adds Margrith Appleby, General Manager of Kaspersky ANZ.

The program requires basic knowledge of the software development lifecycle, programming, and information security. The training will provide organisations with an introduction to product security evaluation and threat modeling, as well as source code review and vulnerability management. Taking part in the program pilot will be free of charge and will be launched first for government organisations and academia in Q3, 2020. Later this year the training will be available for business organisations. Interested parties can learn more and request information here.

Remote transparency

With the reality of global self-isolation and social distancing, we need to make sure key services are not limited by physical access. The availability of Kaspersky’s Transparency Centers to clients, partners and prospects is no exception. To continue providing access to information about its internal security practices and technologies, Kaspersky has enabled remote access to services of the Transparency Centers, by providing a ‘blue-piste’ assessment option - the best option for getting acquainted with both the company’s engineering practices and unparalleled data protection standards.

With this service, Kaspersky’s trusted partners will still be able to gain an overview of the company’s security and transparency best practices, as well as its products and services. Kaspersky’s security experts are also ready to answer any questions regarding the company’s data processing practices and the functioning of its solutions, together with the organisation of a live demonstration of a source-code review. To request a remote blue-piste assessment option, please visit the website.
Other updates within the framework of the Kaspersky Global Transparency Initiative are available on the dedicated website.
