The company opened its doors to journalists, showcasing its new global headquarter facilities, which opened in March next to the Moscow River.

The cyber criminal ecosystem is constantly changing and growing more complex, said Dmitry Bestuzhev, head of Kaspersky Lab’s Latin America global research and analysis team.
