Attendees and DFIR Professionals around the world agree; if you work in DFIR, you must attend the DFIR Summit:

"Let me begin with a piece of advice: If you work in DFIR, and have not attended a Summit, I would highly recommend trying to make it down to Austin next year. Without a doubt, the amount of knowledge and experience gathered in one place for a brief period of time shifts the global DFIR equilibrium to central Texas. The tools we all love to use, blogs we love to read, and trainings we have learned so much from? All here and all accessible" Read 505 Forensics' DFIR Summit 2015 full review

"Every session I attended was well presented and taught me something new...This was an amazing couple of days and if you missed it, please try to make it next year" Read Forensic 4Cast's DFIR Summit 2015 full review

"The speakers and content @ DFIR Summit are great. The experience drives me to explore tools and techniques I would possibly be unaware of were it not for this SANS event. I would recommend this summit to others newer to DFIR" John Miller, FICO Read more attendee testimonials here
