Welcome to SANSFIRE 2016

Dear Colleague,

For more than 10 years, the Internet Storm Center has been providing free analysis and warning to our community. SANSFIRE 2016 is our annual "ISC Powered" event! Evening talks tap into the expertise behind our daily postings, podcasts, and data collection efforts focusing on current trends and actual relevant threats. The strength of the Internet Storm Center is its group of handlers, who are network security practitioners tasked with securing real networks just like you. This is your chance to meet some of them in person.

Over the last year, we have added new data and features to the Internet Storm Center. We can now provide great context to your logs such as the "color my logs" feature, Like each year, we will have our "State of the Internet" panel. This year is a "must see" as we will reveal new features and initiatives to make the Internet Storm Center better than ever.

Each evening, the ISC handlers will share their most interesting experiences about the newest cyber hazards. These special presentations are free to everyone who pays for a course at SANSFIRE 2016. See our Bonus Sessions page to find out more about these talks.

Now is the perfect time to take the next step in your career as cybersecurity is more vital, crucial, and important to the growth of your organization than ever before. SANSFIRE is where you can learn the skills, tips and tricks from the experts so you can win the battle against the wide range of cyber adversaries that want to harm your environment.

SANSFIRE 2016 hosts world-class instructors teaching top-quality SANS courses covering penetration testing and hacker exploits, cyber defense, IT security, management, wireless pen testing, forensics, secure coding, and much more. We also have one- and two-day courses to round out your training, which will be available at a steeply discounted price if taken with a 4-6 day course.

All SANS courses directly address the kinds of incidents reported by the Internet Storm Center in their daily diaries. And, it's a SANS promise that what you learn you'll be able to apply immediately back at the office. Here is what past SANSFIRE attendees told us:
