Virus Bulletin announces programme of the first International Threat Intelligence Summit

Posted by   Martijn Grooten on   Aug 29, 2018

Today, we are excited to announce the programme of the first International Threat Intelligence Summit, which will form an integral part of the VB2018 conference programme.

Most of the people attending Virus Bulletin conferences work in roles that involve threat intelligence, whether it is to generate such data, to share with others, or to use it to fight real-world threats, and the VB Conference has always been the place where these people learn about new and existing threats, while building essential human connections.

The Threat Intelligence Summit is a natural extension of this: a forum that will bring together industry analysts, commercial and academic researchers, network operators and software developers, to help us understand the overall evolution of the threat intelligence landscape, both commercial and open-source.

Thus we are thrilled to have a programme which includes industry analyst Michael Osterman, Norm Richie of the Secure Domain Foundation, Tobias Knecht of Abusix, and regular VB speaker Juan Andres Guerrero-Saade, who will also present a paper on Wednesday on a related topic.

We are also both grateful and proud to announce that Abusix, with whom VB has long been working on email security tests, will be sponsoring this event.

The Threat Intelligence Summit will take place on Friday 5 October and, despite what was previously announced, no separate registration is required. You will, of course, need a ticket for VB2018 (register now!), but if you work in threat intelligence it won't be hard to justify attending the conference!
