What VB conference attendees say:

“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
“A great way to keep up with what's happening in the anti-malware industry.”
John Aycock, Associate Professor, University of Calgary
“Not all Security events are created equal – the Virus Bulletin Conference remains one of the few places to find 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
“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
“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
