  • July 15, 2015

SANS Digital Forensics summit and training event will return to Prague this October with its largest line up to date. SANS Digital Forensics, Incident Response Prague 2015 (DFIR) starts with a one-day summit on Sunday 11th October, consisting of industry talks and presentations from an expert panel. The rest of the two week event will see attendees take part in 8 courses and a DFIR edition of SANS' NetWars tournament.

DFIR Prague 2015 will also debut the new SANS FOR578: Cyber Threat Intelligence course. During a targeted attack, an organisation needs a top-notch and cutting-edge incident response armed with the critical intelligence necessary to understand how adversaries operate and to combat the threat. FOR578: Cyber Threat Intelligence offers training to help teams detect, scope, and select resilient courses of action in response to such intrusions and data breaches.

As course co-author and SANS instructor Robert M. Lee explains, "When considering the value of threat intelligence, most individuals and organisations ask themselves three questions: What is threat intelligence? When am I ready for it? How do I use it? This class answers these questions and more at a critical point in the development of the field of threat intelligence in the wider community."

DFIR Prague 2015 will also offer the following SANS DFIR courses:

  • FOR408: Windows Forensic Analysis with Rob Lee
  • FOR508: Advanced Digital Forensics and Incident Response with Jess Garcia
  • FOR518: Mac Forensic Analysis with Sarah Edwards
  • FOR526: Memory Forensics In-Depth with Alissa Torres
  • FOR572: Advanced Network Forensics and Analysis with Philip Hagen
  • FOR585: Advanced Smartphone Forensics with Cindy Murphy
