Fast Facts You Need To Know


According to ‘Der Spiegel’, the majority of Natalya Kasperskaya’s fortune is in the form of funds derived from asset sales. As for Kaspersky herself, in October 2015, in response to the question as to whether the ‘Forbes’ calculations are accurate, she emphasized that her company is non-public and thus has no need to reveal its level of capitalization, while adding that “it is nevertheless good to see that people seem to appreciate the value of ‘InfoWatch’”.


Today, InfoWatch is a group of companies working in two main business areas — corporate protection against internal threats and external targeted attacks — with the company holding almost a 50% share of the Russian confidential data protection market (DLP systems). Among longstanding clients are Russian governmental organizations, as well as ‘Sberbank’, ‘Beeline’, ;Lukoil’, ‘Tatneft’, ‘Surgutneftegas’, ‘Sukhoi’, ‘Magnitogorsk Iron and Steel Works’, etc. In addition, InfoWatch is actively developing the German, Middle East, and South-East Asian markets.


According to Forbes, Natalya Kasperskaya had a fortune of around $220 million in March 2013 – an estimate which increased to $230 million in 2014 and $270 million in 2015. In March 2015, Russian news portal ‘’ agreed with Forbes’ 2014 estimation while, in July 2015, German magazine ‘Der Spiegel’ published an estimation of €207 million. Finally, in August of the same year, women’s magazine ‘Cosmopolitan’ published an estimate of $270 million.


This required a fundamentally different skill set and approach, with Natalya’s previous experience in management turning out not to be particularly relevant. Nevertheless, in 2012 InfoWatch, which was previously unprofitable, recorded its first earnings and went on growing at an annual rate of 60—70%. According to ‘Forbes’, InfoWatch annual revenue reached around $12 million in 2015, with independent experts polled by Russian daily newspaper ‘Kommersant’ in spring 2015 estimating the business to be worth $40–50 million.


In April 2011, Natalya’s 20-year-old son Ivan was kidnapped in the Strogino district of Moscow on his way to work, with the perpetrators holding him in one of the villages in the Sergievo-Posadsky subregion of Moscow oblast (suburb) and demanding a ransom of €3 million from his parents. However, five days later Ivan was freed thanks to the actions of the Russian intelligence services, with the five kidnappers, including two repeat offenders, being sentenced to prison terms ranging from 4.5 to 11 years.


From April 2008 until March 2012, Natalya was a member of the board of the Russian-German chamber of commerce. In addition, from 2009 until 2011, she was head of the working party on information and computer technologies under the federal target program of the Ministry of Education and Science of Russia, referred to as “Research and inventions in priority scientific and technology development areas in Russia in 2014—2020”.


In August 2007, Natalya was unseated and suspended from her key management functions by Eugene Kaspersky due to the couple’s divorce and the deepening ideological divide between the two. Eventually, Natalya agreed to stay on as Chairperson of the newly established board of ‘Kaspersky Lab’, before finally breaking all ties with the previously family driven business in 2011, with Kaspersky Lab buying out Natalya’s stake in the company in 2007 and 2011 (around 30% of shares in 2007).

Under Natalya’s supervision, Kaspersky Lab turned into a leading antivirus corporation with a network of regional offices worldwide. At the moment of the power change in 2007, annual sales revenue had reached $126 million, while the company had an estimated capitalization of over $1.3 billion and yearly revenue of $700 million by 2011, when Natalya sold her remaining stake and departed. After the change in management, the company’s rate of growth dropped visibly, with global revenue growing by 40% in 2009, 13.7% in 2011, 3% in 2012, and 6% in 2013.

Natalya Kasperskaya has been CEO and majority owner of ‘InfoWatch’ since October 2007, with her stake in the company being linked to the business separation deal with her ex-husband. Natalya made her main investments in ‘InfoWatch’, ‘Kribrum’ and ‘Nanosemantics’ co-owned by her and Igor Ashmanov, and ‘G Data Software’ AG, a German antivirus company.


In 2005, Igor and Natalya had a daughter, Alexandra, who was followed by a second daughter, Maria, in 2009 and a third daughter, Varvara, in 2012. Natalya’s sons from her first marriage both studied at Lomonosov Moscow State University, with Maxim graduating from the faculty of Geography and Ivan from the faculty of Computational Mathematics and Cybernetics.


After ‘Kaspersky Lab’ had bought the antispam technology developed by ‘Ashmanov and Partners’, the head of the latter, Igor Ashmanov, gave the buyer an idea to use the antispam engine backwards for protection against data leaks. During 2001–2002, ‘Kaspersky Lab’ programmers developed a solution which later became known as InfoWatch Traffic Monitor Enterprise and which offers protection for corporate users against internal threats (a DLP system). In December 2013, a subsidiary called ‘InfoWatch’ was established to develop and distribute new software.


Natalya launched the Kaspersky Lab foundation in June 1997, was key to the naming of the new company, and worked as CEO for more than 10 years. Shares in ‘Kaspersky Lab’ were initially split between Eugene Kaspersky (50%), his two teammate programmers Alexey De-Monderik and Vadim Bogdanov (20% each), and Natalya Kasperskaya (10%). In 1997, Kaspersky Lab sales started to double yearly, with turnover reaching around $7 million in 2001 and exceeding $67 million in 2006.


Natalya met her second husband, Igor Ashmanov, in 1996 at the CeBIT computer expo in Hannover, where they were working at neighboring stands. A year later, Natalya and Igor renewed their acquaintance and started communicating with one another regularly on a professional basis. Natalya Kasperskaya remembers that they started dating two or three years later, after the divorce with Eugene, with the couple deciding to marry in 2001.


After graduating from the institute, Natalya was assigned to the Central Scientific and Construction Bureau in Moscow, where she worked for half a year as a research scientist before going on maternity leave. Natalya started her career in IT at the age of 28, when she took on a job, in January 1994, as a salesperson for a computer accessories and software firm with a 50-dollar monthly salary. The job was based in a newly opened store in the KAMI Information Technologies Center created by a former professor of Natalya’s ex-husband, Eugene Kaspersky, from a Higher School of the KGB during the Soviet epoch. She believes that all personal data, such as search history, geolocation, contacts, correspondence, photo and video materials, should belong to the State.

In September 1994, Natalya became head of a distribution department of AntiViral Toolkit Pro (AVP), which had been under development by Eugene Kaspersky’s team since 1991. Over two or three years, Natalya successfully built distribution channels and a technical support network and entered international markets, with sales growing rapidly from an initial $100–200 per month in 1994, to more than $130,000 after a year, over $600,000 in 1996 and more than $1 million in 1997. Revenue was divided between the team and the mother company until 1997, when the future founders of ‘Kaspersky Lab’ decided to start their own business.


Natalya met her first husband, Eugene Kaspersky, at a health resort in January 1987 when she was twenty, with the couple marrying just six months later. In 1989, in her fifth year at the institute, Natalya gave birth to her first son Maxim, with a second son, Ivan, following in 1991. The couple split up in 1997 and divorced in 1998, at Eugene’s instigation. However, due to their joint and rapidly growing business, the divorce had to be covered up for a couple of years in order to not demotivate employees and panic the market.


From 1984 until 1989, Natalya studied applied mathematics in the Moscow Institute of Electronics and Mathematics, where the topic of her diploma was a mathematical model of a nuclear reactor cooling system. Later, she earned a bachelor’s degree from the Open University in the UK. During her studies at the Moscow institute, she met her first husband Eugene Kaspersky, whom she married in 1986.
