Mikko Hyppönen

I catch cybercriminals.

I'm the Chief Research Officer for F-Secure - an antivirus company based out of Finland.

I've worked with F-Secure since 1991, running our research team through the biggest computer virus outbreaks in history. I work quite a bit with international law enforcement on cybercrime cases.

I give 5-10 keynotes in international conferences a year. Also, I write for Scientific American, Foreign Policy and CNN.com.

My TED story

I remember sitting down in TED 2009 in Long Beach to watch a talk. The guy sitting next to me had longer hair and beard. We started talking. Turns out he was Matt Groening. Only in TED.
