VB2014: Slides day three

Thanks all for a fantastic conference and see you in Prague... or in Denver!

Two days ago, a lively panel discussion closed what we can only describe as a fantastic conference. For those that were here, we hope you enjoyed it as much as we did and we hope you found a lot of inspiration in the presentations you saw and from the people you met.

Many of Friday's speakers let us make their presentation slides available; we hope to add a few more after the conference:

'Windigo' research wins first annual Péter Sz?r award

The first of many awards to commemorate brilliant researcher.

When, in November last year, we heard of the passing of Péter Sz?r, we wanted to do something to keep the memory of Péter alive.

Not only was Péter a long-serving member of the VB advisory board, a regular contributor to Virus Bulletin magazine and a regular speaker at the VB conference, he was also one of the industry's brightest researchers - and of course, the author of the classic book The Art of Computer Virus Research and Defense. Perhaps more importantly than all that, he was a very kind and genuine person.

Following some suggestions, we decided to set up a Péter Sz?r award, to be awarded annually at the VB conference for the best piece of technical security research. The first such award was presented during the gala dinner at VB2014 last night.

VB2014: Slides day two

Another day of excellent presentations.

The second day of VB2014 was just as successful as the first one, and saw 22 interesting presentations, divided over two parallel streams, on a wide range of security topics. They included the seven last-minute papers that were added to the programme only three weeks ago.

Just as yesterday, many speakers let us share their presentation slides, and we hope to add more after the conference:

VB2014: Slides day one

Almost £1,300 donated to WWF!

The inaugural Virus Bulletin conference was held in 1991, making it one of the oldest security conferences in the world. It is also one of very few conferences that travels around the world.

This year, the conference is taking place in Seattle, WA, USA and this morning, more than 400 people gathered to enjoy Katie Moussouris's exciting interactive keynote address.

This is a record attendance for the VB conference, and while pessimists will link this to the sad state of security, optimists will point out the fact that this shows even better co-operation among security professionals. Of course, we like to think the excellent programme was a contributing factor too.

VB2014 previews: an overview

Fourteen blog posts look ahead at the 24th Virus Bulletin conference.

In just a few more hours, delegates will be able to collect their VB2014 badges before the conference really gets going tomorrow. If you are as impatient as we are but, unlike us, don't have to spend the next few hours stuffing delegate bags and alphabetising badges, you might want to read some of the blog posts we have published over the last few weeks, previewing some of the conference presentations.

Of course, there are many more papers than those previewed, and we urge you to take a look at the full programme, which shows the full spectrum of papers.
