The Antidrone system and a new platform for online voting were created in Russia – E Hacking News
The Antidrone system will allow detecting drones that fly up to any object, said Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of the Kaspersky Lab. Depending on the model of the drones, the program can either land it, send it back, or stun it.
“This is necessary at sporting events, at airports, and for private businesses. Do I want someone’s drones flying around our office? I don’t want. This is the case when simultaneous sales will probably go both in Russia and in Europe,” said Eugene Kaspersky.
Another startup of the Kaspersky Lab is an online voting system based on blockchain. According to Eugene Kaspersky, it can only be hacked by infecting a specific device. However, it will be difficult to infect a lot of devices.
“If you infect a thousand devices, it will not affect big elections in any way, but if you infect a million devices, it will be immediately noticeable. Of course, the elections will be disrupted, but we will see it,” said Eugene Kaspersky.
The development also includes a process for monitoring online voting.
“If you want to observe the elections, put the server in the blockchain. So we simultaneously increase the blockchain, that is, the number of machines that calculate all this, and give access to observers. That is, if you want to be an observer, come with your computer,” explained the expert.
Also, during the pandemic, the company created its own travel accelerator “Kaspersky Exploring Russia”. The program is designed to help tourism startups overcome the crisis and create the basis for further implementation of their projects. During the selection stage, the Kaspersky Lab received more than 500 applications from 47 countries.
Mister Kaspersky also said that Russia trains the world’s best programmers, but this sometimes leads to the fact that the world’s best hackers also speak Russian.
