Eugene Kaspersky on why e-crime is going social

Eugene Kaspersky, co-founder of Kaspersky Labs discusses the threat of cyber attacks that target critical national infrastructure.

Eugene Kaspersky fears social networks could be used to manipulate people and attack nations through disinformation. 

"Online elections are also under threat from cyber attacks, which puts democracy under threat," he says. 

He also believes people are giving away too much personal information. "There is too much data collected about everyone."

For businesses, Kaspersky says CISOs (chief information security officers) need to prepare for highly sophisticated, targeted attacks, designed to steal information.
