Over the course of this eight-day training event, you'll enjoy:

  • Highly technical Summit talks - The industry's top practitioners will share their latest digital forensics and incident response research, solutions, tools, and case studies. You’ll have more than 20 talks to choose from, plus lots of new event features that will have you schooled up for the year and planning for 2021 before you’re on the plane out.
  • Ten SANS DFIR courses - Enhance your knowledge base and add to your toolkit with a hands-on, immersive course taught by top SANS instructors and course authors.
  • DFIR NetWars - The Coin Slayer! - Earn DFIR course coins by correctly answering all questions from all four levels of one or more of the eight DFIR domains. Leave Austin with a mother lode of coinage!

Who Should Attend

Every year, forensic and incident response professionals from around the world attend the SANS DFIR Summit to learn how to overcome their latest obstacles, learn about the latest open-source forensic tools, share methods and strategies proven effective in their investigations, and learn from the top DFIR practitioners in the industry.

The knowledge shared over just two days in Austin is enough to last the entire year. Whether this is your first or thirteenth DFIR Summit, you’ll be joining a community that is driven by the search for truth in digital forensics and eradicating adversaries from their target environment through incident response engagements.

Ask any of the returning attendees - a key benefit is that you’ll have the opportunity to network with other like-minded DFIR professionals at our community-building events, which are the perfect way to connect in a more casual setting and cultivate relationships--all while having fun! If you work in digital forensics or incident response, the SANS DFIR Summit is the must-attend event of the year.

Join us in Austin as we bring both the knowledge and the fun - you won’t regret it!
