Virus Bulletin at RSA

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Apr 13, 2018

Next week, I will be joining the international security community to attend the RSA Conference in San Francisco.

Though it lacks the intimate atmosphere of so many smaller security conferences, there is probably no better place than RSA to meet so many security experts and discuss the things they're working on. I'm certainly looking forward to discussing VB's conference and tests, but also the products and services that others offer to make this world a more secure place.

Do say hello if you run into me, or send me a message if you want to meet for a chat.

Unfortunately, I will miss BSides San Francisco, which takes place on Sunday and Monday.  I spoke at the event two years ago and can recommend it as a great, and much more intimate, conference. If you find some time (and manage to get yourself a ticket), do go – you won't regret it!
