Kaspersky Lab experts to address cybersecurity hot topics in mobile application security, corporate communications and connected cars

WOBURN, Mass.--()--Kaspersky Lab today announces that three of its experts in cybersecurity research, business development and corporate communications will be speaking at RSA Conference 2018, being held Monday, April 16 through Friday, April 20 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, CA. In addition to the company’s activities at booth North Hall #3321, the sessions Kaspersky Lab expert speakers will present on, in date order, include:

Leaking ads – is user data truly secure?
April 17, 2018, from 2:15 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. PST
Moscone South Room 208
This session presented by Roman Unuchek, senior malware analyst at Kaspersky Lab, will cover how most developers currently use HTTPS to protect user data, but it doesn’t ensure that their apps are secure. Roman will elaborate on Kaspersky Lab research that found that several popular advertising software development kits (SDK’s) are transmitting user data unencrypted by HTTP, which often fails to protect such data. He will also show examples of how well-known apps can contain third-party code with security issues and educate attendees on how to ensure data safety moving forward.

Behind the scenes of an advanced cyber incident: APT corporate communications case study
April 18, 2018, from 8:00 a.m. – 8:45 a.m. PST
Moscone West Room 2022
During his talk, Povel Torudd, global head of corporate communications, CSO department, at Kaspersky Lab will educate attendees for the first time on Kaspersky Lab’s corporate communications lessons learned from the highly sophisticated APT found inside the company’s network in 2015, Duqu2. The incident, and the lead up to announcing it publicly, presented the corporate communications team with a completely new challenge and set a new standard in how the company communicates securely.

Securing the future of mobility: Is your connected car unhackable?
April 18, 2018, from 2:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. PST
The Marriott in The Sandbox – CHV Stage
In this discussion, Sergey Kravchenko, senior business development manager, future technologies, at Kaspersky Lab will focus on how modern cars are not just electromechanical vehicles anymore and how they bring new challenges to the world of security. Cars are becoming more and more connected, and at the same time, new technologies like remote diagnostics, telematics and infotainment are creating new risks for the industry. Sergey will explain these risks, clarify how they can be addressed and help attendees understand how cybersecurity expertise can improve car safety.
