IT Pro: Eugene Kaspersky, CEO of Kaspersky Lab. You’d be hard pushed to find a more bubbly, cheerful and occasionally explosive presenter on the depressing, inescapable and often implausible field of cyber security. Then again, I guess he should be pretty jolly, since he’s in the business of plugging the leaks, Wiki or otherwise, in companies and home-user .
Kaspersky was presenting at this year’s CeBIT exhibition, in Hannover. Or rather, he was presenting in one of the more corporate parts of the show – you can’t really think of it as a single event with a single audience. There are halls for mainframe buyers, halls for software companies, halls for gamers, halls for home automation, routers and internet access and son on. Indeed, there’s even a printer and folder-stapler machine hall.
