Online Espionage Espionage is all about collecting information - Mikko Hypponen

Today, information is stored on computers and networks, making them potentially accesible from anywhere in the world. As a result, state-sponsored espionage is happening increasingly with computer attacks such as backdoors and remote trojans. Why was RSA Security hacked in spring 2011? How did they do it?

According to information leaked by Wikileaks, the US Government has classified him as an infosec rock star (true story). He doesn't often speak publicly, but when he does, it's in venues like DEF CON, Rubicon Detroit or TED. Visit our website for more - go
