    Keynote speaker Mikko Hypponen is a veteran of the security industry, having started working with viruses and malware 21 years ago in 1991.

    "We're seeing right now the beginning of the next revolution on how future wars are being fought. We are right now seeing how basically any developed nation is starting to stockpile on cyber attacks and cyber arms. It's a cyber arms race, and it's starting right now," he said.

    Juniper Networks senior director Christofer Hoff gave the plenary address, during which he claimed to be wearing a "wearable Japanese space toilet". This was quite apt, as his presentation on commode computing discussed "relevant advances in toiletry and IT — from squat pots to cloud bots — better waste management through security automation".
