F1 Team Scuderia Ferrari Beefs Up Protection Against Cyber Attacks Ahead Of Italian GP
F1 team Scuderia Ferrari "has increased its protection against cyber attacks ahead of Sunday's Italian Grand Prix," according to Uhl & Schneider of BILD. Ferrari sponsor anti-virus software company Kaspersky Lab Founder Eugen Kaspersky said, "Our new five-year deal includes a special security program. It was developed in six months and has been installed in 4,000 computers now. It will be installed in additional devices during the next year so that Ferrari is completely covered." The 47-year-old Russian knows that "the fight against hackers is a race against time." Since the NSA scandal was made public by Edward Snowden "it has become clear -- nobody is safe from wiretapping and hacking." Kaspersky: "We are in the midst of a cyber war in which the attacks become more severe and viruses more aggressive than ever before. Computers are in general vulnerable, no matter where they are located, in F1 cars, team facilities or at private homes" (BILD, 9/4).
