About VDA Labs

We practice what we teach. Really.

VDA Labs was founded in 2007 with the goal of providing world class information security training through premier security conferences, on-site training tailored for organizations, and through virtual delivery. Following success in the training field, demand grew for expanding services into the areas of Enterprise Security Consulting and Code Security Consulting.

VDA loves to help move the ball forward working with CISOs, SMEs, security product vendors, and application developers across the world to improve the security posture of their organizations and products. We look forward to collaborating with your team!
