Question for written answer P-000603-18
to the Commission
Rule 130
Anna Elżbieta Fotyga (ECR)

 Subject:  Risks associated with the use of Kaspersky Lab software
 Answer in writing 

More information has emerged from experts and in the media about Russia’s intelligence services monitoring anti-virus software produced by the company Kaspersky Lab, with the aim of gaining unauthorised access to information (including classified information). With that in mind:

Has Kaspersky Lab software been used at the Commission or any other EU institutions or agencies?

If so, to what extent? Have any assessments been made as to the possible risks associated with the use of the software by Russian intelligence to hack into IT systems and databases, and has a decision been taken — mirroring that, for example, of the US administration — to stop using this dangerous software?
