F-secure flew its chief research officer, Mikko Hypponen, out to Australia last week to meet the press. The company hosted an event -- the F-Secure Future of the Digital Economy Forum -- and invited a bunch of very interesting panellists to discuss the state of information security today. They asked Risky Business to moderate and record the session.

The panellists were:

  • Mikko Hypponen, chief research officer, F-Secure
  • Graham Ingram, managing director of AusCERT
  • Neil Gaughan, national manager of the Australian Federal Police's High Tech Crime Operations
  • Nick Abrahams, national leader of Deacons' technology, media & telecommunications group
  • Michael Lonie, policy manager for the Australian Retailers Association
  • Crispin Tristram, consumer online general manager for Singtel Optus

In the interests of disclosure, Risky Business was paid to moderate and record this event.

It was a genuinely interesting discussion, and we're podcasting the whole thing, more or less unedited. So here it is -- last Wednesday's F-Secure future of the digital economy forum, held at the ocean room at Sydney's overseas passenger terminal at Circular Quay West. Enjoy.
