VI Labs’ Vlad Iliushin Joins AMTSO as New Board Member

AMTSO, the cybersecurity industry’s testing standards community, announced a new member-elected board of directors, with Vlad Iliushin, founder of VI Labs, joining AMTSO’s board.

THE EYES – the Anti-Malware Testing Standards Organization – says that on the tester side, members re-elected AV-Test CEO and CTO Maik Morgenstern, SKD Labs CEO Jesse Song, and SE Labs CEO Simon Edwards, and on the vendor side, Alexander Vukcevic, director of Threat Protection Labs at NortonLifeLock, and Glaucia Young, director of engineering at Microsoft, as board members.

According to AMTSO, Vlad Iliushin brings to the board more than 10 years of experience as a cybersecurity researcher, with a strong background in IoT and mobile security research.

Iliushin worked as an IoT lab manager at Avast for several years before founding his own company, VI Labs, focused on competitive intelligence and SaaS, and in these roles he was involved in leading and contributing to the group AMTSO’s IoT Working Group, which recently published the AMTSO Guidelines for Testing IoT Security Products. Previously, he worked as an Android tester and automation engineer for Samsung Electronics.

“We are delighted to welcome Vlad Iliushin as a new member of the Board of Directors; tapping into its expertise in the area of ​​IoT security has already been and will be of great value to AMTSO,” said Dennis Batchelder, President and CEO of AMTSO.

“We started as an organization with a mission to create a fair testing standard for the anti-malware space, but today cybersecurity is much more than anti-malware protection. As our discussions broaden to cover IoT, mobile, and cloud security testing, having board representatives from the wider cybersecurity industry is essential today.

The AMTSO Board of Directors is comprised of tester and vendor members to reflect both parties equally when developing objective standards and best practices for testing and evaluating cybersecurity products.

AMTSO says Avast security evangelist Luis Corrons and Simon Edwards will continue to co-chair the board — and David Ellis, vice president of sales and corporate relations at the validation provider SecureIQLab cloud security, was elected to a 2-year board position in 2021, and continues to support the board as a member.
