From F-Secure’s headquarters in Finland, Mikko Hypponen leads an elite team that has unearthed some of the world’s biggest online threats. Among the many viruses he’s found include the infamous Storm Worm, and the Blaster Worm which caused a severe power outage in the North-Eastern US that left 32 million people in the dark. Be has also led classified briefings on the Stuxnet worm, an enormously complex worm aimed at sabotaging Iranian nuclear enrichment facilities. He’s widely regarded in the industry and was named one of PC World’s 50 Most Important People on the Web. He’s also one of very few security researchers with a reputation that has gained mainstream attention. He was the subject of a Vanity Fair profile, and was listed in Foreign Policy’s list of Top 100 Global Thinkers. With professional experience in security research stretching back to the early 90’s, Mikko has a wealth of knowledge and continues to take a forward-looking approach as new threats emerge, and as governments, corporations and criminals become more sophisticated at using viruses as weapons of extortion, theft, fraud, and surveillance.
