Kaspersky Lab, a leading developer of secure content and threat management solutions, announces that it has become a “Global Growth Company Industry Shaper” at the World Economic Forum. Eugene Kaspersky, Chairman and CEO of the company, took part in the 2012 World Economic Forum annual meeting in Davos, where he shared his experiences and his vision for the future of the IT security industry and the expected forthcoming threats, while networking with the world’s leading business and policy experts.
Emphasising the importance of the Davos meeting, Eugene Kaspersky said: “I was very proud to represent Kaspersky Lab at the WEF meeting in Davos. Being among the Global Growth Company Industry Shapers is a great honour for us. It also brings us new business opportunities across industries and regions. We are happy that our technological and business success has been recognised by such a respectable organisation as the World Economic Forum. We will do our best to make a serious contribution to the development of the IT security industry on a global scale!”
Global Growth Company Industry Shapers are 17 exciting new companies from around the world that have demonstrated strong potential to disrupt the value chain, displace incumbents and transform their respective industries. These companies play an important role in shaping specific industry issues and contributing to the Forum’s programs and projects through their innovative approaches.
The World Economic Forum’s GGC was formed in 2007 to engage dynamic high-growth companies with the potential to be tomorrow’s industry leaders and to become a driving force of economic and social change.
