VB2017 paper: The (testing) world turned upside down

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Nov 8, 2017

Few subjects are as hotly debated within the security community as the testing of security software. Virus Bulletin has been at the core of many of these debates, both as a company with two decades' worth of experience testing security software and as a facilitator through the Bulletin and our conference.

At VB2017 in Madrid, industry veteran and ESET Senior Research Fellow David Harley presented a paper in the small talks room on the state of security software testing, which was followed by a long discussion led by AMTSO's John Hawes. The session was well attended and, in demonstration of just how much people care about the subject, the discussion ran well into the lunch break.
