Kaspersky to move user data to new Swiss centre by end

In fact, its Global Transparency Initiative was announced in October previous year in response to the allegations.

As part of the announcement, Anton Shingarev, vice-president of public affairs at Kaspersky Labs said: "The allegations we faced are wrong and there is no evidence".

The DHS believed that Kaspersky Lab products contained security holes and that exploiting the software to gain access to federal networks was trivial at best.

According to the agency, Russian laws allows the Kremlin to potentially lean on Kaspersky Lab to perform cyberespionage and intercept communications connected to Russian networks.

Dick Cheney wants to bring back waterboarding because 'it worked'
It is known she played a key role in what is being termed "brutal interrogation" of suspects involved in Islamic terrorism. "If it were my call I would not discontinue those programs", Cheney told Fox Business, adding that they "worked".

To improve transparency and integrity, the company said it is also looking for an independent third-party based in Switzerland to supervise its operations in order to assure customers that their data can not be compromised by the Russian state. The new measures are the next steps in the development of the initiative, but they also reflect the company's commitment to working with others to address the growing challenges of industry fragmentation and a breakdown of trust.

One of the easy attacks to make against Kaspersky Labs has been to focus on its Russian heritage and then raise questions of trust and regardless of whether it has any validity it has made an impact on brand association.

The transparency center will also host the company's "build infrastructure" that Kaspersky uses to assemble and manage its products.

The transition of systems and data will be overseen by an unnamed independent third party that is based in Switzerland.

Harry Reid receiving treatment for pancreatic cancer
Harry Reid (D-NV) underwent surgery Monday to remove a tumor from his pancreas, Reid's family said in a statement Monday. According to a statement from Reid's family, the problem was detected early and the surgery went well.

Kaspersky said more transparency centers are set to open in North America and Asia by 2020, but the company is not yet ready to disclose more details.

Independent supervision and reviewKaspersky Lab is arranging for the data storage and processing, software assembly and source code to be independently supervised by a third party qualified to conduct technical software reviews.

The decision by the vendor, as part of its Global Transparency Initiative, to move a number of core processes from Russia to the famously neutral Switzerland, should stem a lot of the criticisms about Russian ties. "Since transparency and trust are becoming universal requirements across the cybersecurity industry, Kaspersky Lab supports the creation of a new, non-profit organisation to take on this responsibility, not just for the company, but for other partners and members who wish to join", Kaspersky added.

Jets Look To Extend Series Lead Over Golden Knights
