Ilya Sachkov, Founder and CEO of Group-IB - Global Cyber Security Company: “Real incidents of recent years show that actions of cyber criminals can be successful even against very well defended businesses. Classic IT security solutions normally react at the moment of attack, which is rather late for the victim. It is expected that the scale of the global damage from cyber criminals will reach USD 2.1 trillion by 2019. In the new conditions of proactive protection systems there is high demand for systems of early prevention of cyberattacks by using new methods and deep understanding of cybercrime and its infrastructure. Having a 12-years experience in cybercrimes prevention Group-IB makes the threat prevention and cyber intelligence class products, that saved $70 million from clients in Russia and 26 other countries.”  

Sergey Khodakov, Head of Cybersecurity Division at IT Cluster, Skolkovo: “At Skolkovo we focus on development of innovation technologies that could provide efficient protection of business in the current landscape of cyber threats.  An increasing development of cyber-physical systems, a growing number of business transactions are carried out with mobile devices, a large amount sensitive information is stored in the cloud and mobile device, all this makes them high-profile targets for criminals.  As of today, most of popular cybersecurity solution are based on technologies developed more than ten years ago and from our experience they are not always efficient in the current landscape of cyber threats. Therefore, Skolkovo brings together the efforts of software and hardware developers, operators, integrators and other participants of the market for fast prototyping and development innovation products.”
