    According to Cisco, the company's executives prefer to avoid presenting from the stage so they can "make a real connection and establish eye contact with the delegates". Here you can see AusCERT general manager Graham Ingram looking on as Stewart continues his talk.

    Stewart said he was impressed with the amount of information sharing — between partners and competitors — in order to collectively fight cybercriminals. He called on chief information security officers to not push back projects, which they might later regret. "Don't let this conference in two years be a conference in which we say to ourselves, if we only started something two years ago, we would be better off than we are," he said.
