Introduced in 1991, the VB conference is considered the anti-malware event of the year. The conference represents an opportunity for experts in the field to share their research interests, discuss methods and technologies and set new standards, as well as meet with - and learn from - those who put their technologies into practice in the real world. Only 38 of more than 160 proposals were selected by the VB2009 committee for this year's conference program. The strong presence of Fortinet's industry experts comes in recognition of their major contribution on the latest findings on global Internet threats and attacks.
