Kaspersky Lab lLaving Russia For Switzerland After Kremlin Spying Claims

Kaspersky Lab leaving Russia for Switzerland after Kremlin spying claims

The move is designed to address customer fears that the Kremlin may be able to access data which is stored in Russia.

By Alexander J Martin, Technology Reporter

Kaspersky Lab is moving its core infrastructure from Russia to Switzerland after reports that the Kremlin used the company's anti-virus software to steal classified US information.

The move will cost the company around $12m (£8.8m) and will relocate its core business away from the jurisdiction of the Russian government and intelligence agencies by the end of 2019.

More than a data centre in Switzerland, the move of Kapersky Lab's software build conveyor - where its products are assembled from source code - will see the programming tools which could allow access to users' computers available for independent audit.
Thigibh a nis le buidheachas
n a gheataibh-san a steach,
Is thigibh fòs le maladh mòr
an cùirtibh naomh a theach :
Is thugaibh dha mòr-bhuidheachas,
ainm beannaichibh gu binn.

Psalm 100: 1-4

"Beware of the false prophets! They come to you wearing sheep's clothing, but underneath they are hungry wolves! You will recognize them by their fruit. Can people pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles?
Matthew 7: 15-16 Complete Jewish Bible


Dear friends, don't trust every spirit. On the contrary, test the spirits to see whether they are from God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Embattled Kaspersky to open Swiss data centre 'for transparency'

Cyber-security firm Kaspersky Lab has said it will relocate some of its operations from Moscow to Switzerland, after the US government and others accused it of spying on customers at the Russian state's demand.

The company said it had chosen Switzerland for its "policy of neutrality" and data protection laws.

Kaspersky makes anti-virus software with an estimated 400 million users.

It denies being linked to Russia's intelligence services.
