Eddy Willems Anti-Virus Consultancy International

This is Eddy Willems’ official and original homepage for anti-virus and anti-malware consultancy with links to most anti-malware sites and companies in the world.

This site is the reference in independent anti-malware advice and information. It is also known as the first Belgian anti-virus page and one of the oldest security sites on the Web. This site is renewed in September 2010 and exists since 1995. Within these pages you will find one of the most comprehensive lists of anti-malware sites in the world with over 10.000 links.

I have been working over 30 years as Anti-Malware Technology Expert for the security industry ( NOXS (a Westcon Group Company), McAfee, TrendMicro and Symantec ) and as Security Evangelist for Kaspersky Lab . I am now working as Security Evangelist for G DATA CyberDefense AG . I am a Belgian Cyber Security Expert who is (or has been) a board member of most international security and malware organizations in the world. I am the first and only in Belgium being on the board of three ( EICAR, AVAR, and LSEC) international security organizations at the same time. Find more about me at the ‘about me’ page for a more detailed bio. I’m also a recognized security media expert having experience with live tv ranging from local Benelux to international TV stations like CNN, Al Jazeera, TRT World and more.

These days I’m also known for my inspiring talks. You can book me for an interesting security talk via my speakers office: Read-My-Lips. I am an inspiring speaker and I’m giving lectures and presentations worldwide for a very wide audience from children to experts.

Take also a look at my Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn channels.

I also advise you to have a look at my newer site www.eddywillems.be  which is more up-to-date.

This site is and will remain always completely independent! (Site Design: Sonia Auger and Eddy Willems)

My New Book ‘Cyberdanger’ Is Released: June 2019

I am really proud that my new book Cyberdanger is available wordwide now. Just buy a copy at your favourite online bookshop!

This book describes the key cybercrime threats facing individuals, businesses, and organizations in our online world. I first explain malware and its origins; I also describe the extensive underground economy and the various attacks that cybercriminals have developed, including malware, spam, and hacking; I also offer constructive advice on countermeasures for individuals and organizations; and I discuss the related topics of cyberespionage, cyberwarfare, hacktivism, and anti-malware organizations, and appropriate roles for the state and the media.

The book is important reading for all professionals engaged with securing information, people, and enterprises. It’s also a valuable introduction for the general reader who wants to learn about cybersecurity.

Blogging and other Information …

I started my website August 25 1995. It was and still is dedicated to cybersecurity. Honestly speaking I always wanted to help people and that was part of my way to deal with it.  I started to blog September 2004 and I’m still doing it. However my blogs are divided up all over several websites since then.

Besides a spectacular improved ‘Cortana’, an innovative HoloLens and a new update of Visual Studio, one specific fact came to us as an interesting surprise. Ubuntu is coming to Windows 10!

Actually it came from a secret project setup by Microsoft and Canonical and it was unveiled at Kevin Gallo’s opening keynote speech during the conference in March. (see https://blogs.windows.com/buildingapps/2016/03/30/windows-10-anniversary-sdk-is-bringing-exciting-opportunities-to-developers/ ) But the good news also has some security implications?
