I am Mikko Hypponen. I hunt hackers. I'm here to answer your questions for Data Privacy Day. AMA!
Thanks, lots of great comments! Now I need to run. See you online and remember to be careful out there! -- Mikko
This is Mikko Hypponen. I've been working with computer security since 1991 and I've tracked down various online attacks over the years. I've written about security, privacy and online warfare for magazines like Scientific American and Foreign Policy.
I work as the CRO of F-Secure in Finland. I speak a lot about security and privacy. Here is a playlist featuring dozens of talks and interviews I've given: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLkMjG1Mo4pKIRUqHj1eUMDqvV5a0o2CoS
If you only want to watch one talk, here's a talk I gave about Hackers and Elections at Websummit: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JAChQaySECY
I'm here for Data Privacy Day, which is actually tomorrow -- January 28. It's an international day observed across Europe, USA and Canada. The point, quite obviously, is to raise awareness about controlling our personal data. I believe data is the new oil. And just like oil brought us both prosperity and problems, data will bring us prosperity, and problems.
I'm glad to answer your questions about anything related to privacy, security, old Atari games or anything. AMA!
