Russian Hi-Tech Spy Devices Under Attack Over Privacy Fears | Latest Gadget News
New Russian technologies, including phone call interception and a facial recognition app, have stirred a fierce debate about privacy and data monitoring. Infowatch, a Moscow-based IT security company managed by businesswoman Natalya Kasperskaya, found itself in hot water last month after it revealed it had invented a system that companies can use to intercept employees’ mobile phone conversations.
Companies outside Russia have also devised call interception software, and Infowatch already markets products that monitor employees’ e-mails, USB keys and printers. But Kasperskaya says she was taken aback by the storm that surrounded the mobile phone innovation “We weren’t expecting this. For us it was only another channel of communication,” Kasperskaya told AFP in an interview.
The Russian authorities and members of the public lashed the invention as a breach of law or infringement of privacy. Infowatch traces its origins back to 1997, when Kasperskaya and her then-husband, now divorced, Eugene Kaspersky co-founded the Kaspersky Lab security software company, which has gone on to global success.
