The Hesperia Tower hotel in Barcelona, Spain, is being prepared to host this year's edition of the Virus Bulletin International Conference between the 5th and 7th of October.
The event, sponsored by major players of the industry such as ESET, Avast and GFI will feature a large number of security professionals from all over the world that will debate subjects such as “Predicting the future of stealth attacks” or “A look at the cybercrime ecosystem and the way it works”
Those interested in the event can register
on the event's official website, the admission fees being $1795 for subscribers to Virus Bulletin and $1895 for non-subscribers. Educational institutes and charities can benefit from a considerable discount.
So what do you get for your money?
First of all, you are granted access to all technical, corporate and break-out sessions and you receive detailed information on the course of action. Attendees will not have to worry about food or drinks during the convention as these are provided by the organizers in most of the days.
Each major security solutions provider has sent forward a couple of speakers that will enlighten the audience with all sorts of techniques and products that innovate the industry.
Cell phone money laundering
will be outlined by Denis Maslennikov from Kaspersky Lab, ESET representatives will mostly speak about botnets and malicious software, while Apple fans can learn everything on cyber attacks and how are “Mac OS X and iOS users playing the role?” from Methusela Cebrian Ferrer iThreat.
These sort of conventions, like the Virus Bulletin, or the upcoming HITB in Malaysia,
are a great opportunity for professionals and security enthusiast to learn about the latest things that cover the field.
As last year's edition in Vancouver was a great success, we can only imagine that this time it will be no different so if you have the opportunity to participate, don't miss out on the occasion.
