VB Conference Testimonials

Some of the comments made by delegates of recent VB Conferences.

The VB Conference is considered by many information security professionals to be the best conference on the circuit - but don't just take our word for it. The following are some of the comments made by delegates of recent VB Conferences:

“This is my favourite conference to attend each year. The content is superb, the networking is bar-none, the organizational aspects are well-polished, you walk away better educated; overall a highly beneficial experience. I love how Virus Bulletin conference brings deep technical talks for researchers but also offers useful information for the enterprise defenders, and then you have small-talks where you can have more intimate and deep conversations with the best security experts in the world.”
Jeannette Jarvis, Director, Intel

“An outstanding conference to learn the latest in IT-security, get new ideas and create new contacts in a very friendly atmosphere. Number 1 for me since many years both in the short and long term.”
Conny Javerdal, Swedish Transport Administration

“Not all Security events are created equal – the Virus Bulletin Conference remains one of the few places to deep, accurate, and above all actionable information that can help your organization defend itself from malicious code today.”
Richard Ford, PhD, Chief Technology Officer, Forcepoint

“A great way to keep up with what's happening in the anti-malware industry.”
John Aycock, Associate Professor, University of Calgary

“Securing our digital world takes innovation and collaboration across all disciplines and industries. There are few gatherings focused on this endeavor that are of the highest quality and passion….VB is one of them. Sharing information, learning the latest research, and connecting with others fighting the good fight is exactly the reason I have been involved for more than 5 years. Don’t miss it!”
Jewel Timpe, Senior Manager, HPE Security

“The Virus Bulletin conference is the largest anti-malware meeting in the world. It is a rare opportunity for world’s anti-malware experts to gather and freely share ideas. After the VB conference in Vancouver I was sharing a cab to the airport with a gentleman from QUALCOMM. It was his first VB conference and he was amazed that “competitors” would share the type and amount of information -- that in his industry it would never happen. To me, that was VB in a nutshell. A forum that provides detailed descriptions of timely tools and techniques to combat all forms of malware, making the industry stronger. The program is the longest and highest quality purely anti-malware focused conference of the year.
It is also a chance for us to take off our company hats and socialize. The ability to network with peers from around the industry and around the world make VB an essential resource for the entire AM industry.”
Mark Kennedy, Distinguished Engineer, Security Technology And Response, Symantec Corporation

“Over the past fifteen years, I have probably attended at least ten Virus Bulletin conferences, and they are truly stellar events. They totally get that we are all there to learn, to share new research and to network. Not only have I made fantastic contacts that have helped grow my business, but I have made some great friends, too. Face it, these guys have been hosting these babies for twenty-plus years, so it's no surprise that they run like clockwork. I wish all conferences I attended had the same attention to detail. Worth every penny.”
Carole Theriault, Director, Tick Tock Social

“Virus Bulletin is amazing. Few places have a whole industry together in one place. The connections are invaluable and have helped change the world”
John Alexander, Senior Information Security Engineer, Mayo Clinic

“I've been attending the Virus Bulletin conference for over 20 years. The reason? There is no better place to be if you want to learn more about the attacks that cybercriminals are launching against companies, and to meet the people who are developing the security software that defends us. If you don't attend VB you're not just missing a great conference, you're putting your company's defences at a disadvantage.”
Graham Cluley, Computer Security Expert, grahamcluley.com

“You meet researchers from Endpoint, Gateway and Cloud vendors and the Security teams for major businesses. You get to discuss issues you see as well as hear about the issues others are having. The content and quality of the papers is very high. Cross-industry collaboration even happens in the bar at Virus Bulletin Conferences. It is the best run conference I have attended.”
Paul Baccas, TOC Response Manager, ProofPoint
