The ALL Digital Forensics, Threat Hunting & Incident Response Training Event

SANS DFIRCON Spring 2021 - Live Online (May 3-8, EDT), offers opportunities to practice and test your skills, network and share your ideas, and learn the latest solutions to overcome investigative challenges from the best Digital Forensics, Threat Hunting, and Incident Response (DFIR) practitioners currently working in the field.

DFIRCON was created to provide an all-inclusive learning experience that leverages the DFIR community’s unique willingness to support colleagues, provide solutions to those who are facing investigative challenges, and always stay ahead of adversaries.

This event offers cutting-edge DFIR training classes that will teach you the most effective ways to obtain forensic evidence, detect compromised systems, identify how and when a breach occurred, and successfully contain and remediate incidents. And you’ll learn it all from some of the best practitioners working in the industry today!

DFIR Coin Slayer

DFIR Coin Slayer - Now with new questions and more interactive challenges!

Prove your mastery in the DFIR arts by playing in the DFIR NetWars Coin Slayer Tournament and win a fortune of DFIR coinage. You must correctly answer all five questions from all four levels of one or more DFIR domains. If you answer all questions correctly for a single discipline, you will earn the class coin even for classes you did not take yet. You can start at any level and with any DFIR field, but watch out; there will be no hints this time! Take your pick, win them all, or answer as many questions as you can, and be the top team or among the top players to get the DFIR NetWars coins.

As a paid course registrant for SANS DFIRCON Spring 2021, you will receive an email invitation the week of the event detailing how to confirm your spot and join online. You will need to follow the steps in the email to join the tournament. Then get ready to practice real-world skills through cutting-edge challenges during DFIR NetWars Tournament, May 6 & 7th, 6:30-9:30 PM EDT.
