This Throwback Thursday, VB heads back to 1997 with 'Through the Administrator's Eye'.
Over the last couple of years, the 'Throwback Thursday' trend has taken the Internet by storm, with social media users indulging in a weekly wallow in nostalgia. The VB team decided it was high time we got in on the act, using the opportunity to take a regular delve into our archives.
This week, we turn back the clock to June 1997 when VB advisory board member Phil Crewe brought us 'Through the Administrator's Eye' — a detailed guide for administrators on how to approach virus protection and recovery, in which he notes that "A policy of virus detection and protection which is known and understood within a company will not only help you to trap a virus earlier, and therefore not send out an infected floppy disk to a client, but it will also enable you to have some authority to say to the client 'it cannot be us' when they report a virus to you."
Early bird discounts available for registrations made before 30 June.
Today, we have opened registration for VB2015, the 25th Virus Bulletin International Conference.
'VB' is one of the oldest security conferences in the world, and one of the very few that travels around the globe. After a very successful event in Seattle in 2014, we will be back in Europe this year as the capital of the Czech Republic, Prague, plays host to the 25th Virus Bulletin Conference.
