Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Last week The Register teamed up with Intel to put on an all-day conference in Millbank, central London. We had a great line-up of speakers, which included Professor Brian Cox and security God Bruce Schneier - for me a stand-out.

We filmed the proceedings for those of you who couldn't be there. The event went down a storm with the invitation-only audience (which included five winners of a lucky dip competition). And we think you will like it too.

So to our video /show report.

Dr Genevieve Bell, anthropologist and Intel Fellow, opened the day with her keynote on what would Data look like if it were a person. She is a thought-provoking and accomplished speaker.

We dipped into science for final session. Professor Brian Cox who did an excellent talk on fundamental physic. Sadly, we can’t compete with BBC contracts, so we don’t have any video of Brian, but you you can read our write up here. Following our fop haired hero was Andrzej Nowak from CERN with a presentation titled: From Femtoscale to Exascale: Computing at CERN. If you’ve ever wondered how these guys do what they do, watch this – it’s quite amazing.
