"Absolutely worth the time and money. The information shared and the connections you make will be used by your team immediately. The value of information is priceless." - Peter Kuzmiskas

Level Up Your Blue Team Skills  

The blue team represents information security professionals on the front line of defending an organization's critical assets and systems against attacks and threats from adversaries. Defending against attacks is an ongoing challenge with new threats emerging all the time. At the SANS Blue Team Summit, enhance your current skill set, become even better at defending your organization, and hear the latest ways to mitigate the most recent attacks! 

Blue team professionals are highly skilled at deploying actionable techniques for timely detection, responding to compromises, and monitoring adversary activities to maintain and improve security over time. It's an ongoing effort, day in & day out. Whether hunting for threats, designing a defensible security architecture, or analyzing log data, it's the skills and agility of blue teams that enable world-class detection and defensive capabilities.

- Jonathan Heese

"I love these summits! It's 2 days of quality content, and easily another 3 days of going through pdfs, extracting links and planning what could be used. What follows this, is a 30, 60, 90d plan to implement."
