International Presence and Publications

AV-TEST security experts are worldwide sought-after contacts and consultants. As speakers at international conferences and symposiums, they provide information on the Institute's latest research findings. In dialog with manufacturers, and as members of advisory committees of government bodies, our experts regularly present the trends in IT security and provide advice on the development of relevant strategies for averting risks.

In this area, you will find a selection of publicly-available conference articles and scientific publications for download.

Do you require advisory services, or would you like one of our security experts to participate in your conference? We look forward to hearing from you.
