Kaspersky Lab to create "transparency centers" after espionage allegations

Kaspersky Lab is going to create "transparency centers" to prove the accusations of cyber espionage are wrong, stated Anton Shingarev, Director of Government Relations, according to Interfax.

"We are going to build a system that will prove that all the allegations we are getting are absurd. We will do an independent analysis of our code and updates. We will do an external audit to show that all the accusations are lies," he said.

The company is going to open 5 centers: in the US, Europe and Asia.

In September, US President Donald Trump ordered US agencies to stop using Kaspersky Lab's software amid the reports that the company might be associated with Russian special services.

Earlier, Ruslan Stoyanov, head of Kaspersky Lab's investigations unit, had been arrested in a treason case. Other people involved in the investigation are FSB Colonel Sergei Mikhailov, Major Dmitry Dokuchaev and businessman Georgy Fomchenkov.

According to The Bell, they are suspected of providing US intelligence services with evidence of Russian hackers' involvement in last year's attacks on the servers of the Democratic National Committee.
