The 30th VB Conference is coming: it’s free, it’s online and it’s packed with features.
VB2020 localhost is the annual and world-renowned Virus Bulletin international conference gone virtual. Featuring the latest and best research on malware, malicious actors and threat intelligence, with live streamed content for 3 days as well as the company of your fellow security researchers from around the world - from novices to legends.
The conference will be broadcast live for 4 hours each day, from 6PM to 10PM GMT+2:00. You can join anytime, and re-watch, rewind or pause the live stream. A wide selection of presentations will also be available for on-demand viewing. It’s no conference without a great community, so we’ll also bring you a Discord server for discussion, networking, QA and fun.
Not all security events are created equal – the Virus Bulletin Conference remains one of the few places to get deep, accurate, and above all actionable information that can help your organization defend itself from malicious code today.
This is my favourite conference to attend each year. I love how Virus Bulletin conference brings deep technical talks for researchers but also offers useful information for enterprise defenders, and you can have deep conversations with the best security experts in the world.
Securing our digital world takes innovation and collaboration across all disciplines and industries. There are few gatherings focused on this endeavour that are of the highest quality and passion… VB is one of them.
An outstanding conference to learn the latest in IT security, get new ideas and create new contacts in a very friendly atmosphere. The VB Conference is number 1 for me for many years both in the short and long term.
I had a wonderful time at Virus Bulletin. What a wonderful conference and collection of presenters and attendees. Truly one of the most enjoyable and enriching conference experiences of the year.
After my first time at @virusbtn I have to say that it’s a really good conference: interesting talks, everybody in the malware/antivirus industry is here, good organization… Definitely a new addition to my must-go list.
Join the Virus Bulletin Threat Intelligence Practitioners' Summit and learn how various teams are investing in threat intelligence as a force multiplier to accomplish great feats.
Threat Intelligence is a necessary part of any security solution and as a force multiplier it can dramatically increase the effectiveness of any cybersecurity product, service, or team. Threat Intelligence becomes a force multiplier in our battle against the adversaries as they look to gain access into our networks. We are a greater team when we work together; our collective efforts magnifies our success.
The TIPS track is sponsored by the Cyber Threat Alliance
The conference will be broadcast live for 4 hours each day, from 16:00 to 20:00 UTC. You can join anytime, and re-watch, rewind or pause the live stream. A wide selection of presentations will also be available for on-demand viewing.
It’s the world-renowned VB conference, as reimagined in an online format. And you get to watch it in a properly socially distanced manner from the comfort of your sofa!
The event will run from 30 Sep to 2 Oct, 2020, with a live broadcast every day from 16:00 to 20:00 UTC (starting in the morning in the Americas, in the evening in Europe, and late night in most of Asia).
If those times are not convenient for you, don’t worry – the conference website will be open around the clock, and you will be able to rewind and re-watch live broadcasts, in addition to plenty of presentations available for on-demand viewing. We also expect our chat server to be active throughout the entire event, so you are not going to miss anything: one of the advantages of a global audience is that someone is always awake!
Our content revolves around in-depth analysis of cybercrime, malware, adversary tactics and the like. Presentations from CTA’s Threat Intelligence Practitioners’ Summit (TIPS) focus on threat intelligence and fostering industry cooperation. For a more precise idea, check out the conference programme.
Please note that as of writing this, the programme is still evolving – there is more to come!
Absolutely! The event will be running a dedicated Discord server, through which you can chat with other participants, contact event partners and speakers and even set up 1:1 or small group meetings via text, audio or video.
Like the best things in life, VB2020 localhost is free.
Please register for VB2020 localhost. Once registered, you will receive a link via email that will become “live” once the conference starts.
Registration is open before, during and after the event, and you can join at any time… so why not register now?
We will bring the usual amount of great content your way, but instead of the 3 parallel tracks of the in-person conference and presentations running throughout the day, we will have a single track, broadcasting live for 4 hours a day. This means many presentations will be available outside the live broadcast for on-demand viewing – meaning you no longer have to choose between tracks and you can watch the presentations whenever and wherever suits you.
No, that would not be safe. As for VB2021, as long as it is safe to do so we will see you in person – we look forward to it! Watch out for the announcement of dates & location at the end of the live broadcast on Day #3.
We are aiming to bring the usual high production values of the VB Conference to the online format to turn VB2020 into a virtual event that you can really enjoy. Among other things, we are paying close attention to audio and video quality to make it as good a listening experience as possible; there will be a live host to make it more than just a series of presentations; and there will be a chat system that works for a high number of visitors (and supports 1:1 and group chats, calls, etc.).
VB2020 localhost will be web-based, so all you will need is a computer, tablet or smartphone and an internet connection.
The language of the presentations and the conference is English.
