VB2017 - information for press

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Sep 28, 2017

Next week, security researchers from around the world will gather in Madrid for VB2017, the 27th International Virus Bulletin Conference.

More than 50 security industry experts will present conference papers to their peers, to help with research in the fight against the various digital threats we all face. This is, and has always been, the primary goal of the conference and is the main reason why so many people keep coming back.

But neither Virus Bulletin nor (most) speakers mind a bit of outside attention – and there are several papers on the programme with a certain newsworthiness. And thus, like every year, press will be in attendance, to cover the conference and to get to know the experts that they may want to consult throughout the year.

If, as a journalist covering cybersecurity, you are interested in attending the conference on a press pass, or have other questions about the conference, please send me an email at martijn.grooten@virusbulletin.com.

And don't forget to follow the #VB2017 hashtag on Twitter during the conference!
