SANSFIRE 2016 will be here in just 51 days according to the official site. This is SANS national event in Washington DC and attracts one of the largest SANS audiences. Mark your calendars: June 11 - 18, 2016.

SANSFIRE 2016  “will showcase 47 cutting-edge courses for all experience levels, a variety of evening talks, and opportunities for serious discussions with the best leaders in the industry and your peers.”

ThreatSTOP will be demonstrating new product capabilities including new threat data, reporting upgrades and how the ThreatSTOP Shield Platform works with leading next-gen firewalls and cloud environments.

We will also be hosting a cocktail reception with Johannes Ullrich, the Director of Research for the SANS Institute. Stay tuned for details.

Other SANSFIRE highlights courtesy of the show guide:

  • Brad Duncan, who provides updates for the Internet Storm Center whenever an exploit kit changes, will talk about some of his latest tricks.
  • Sometimes you are a bit too late and cannot prevent an infection. Kevin Liston deals with this for a living, and during his evening talk, Managing Large-Scale Incident Response, he will teach you how to manage a large-scale incident response.
  • NetWars: you can participate in either the CORE or DFIR NetWars Tournament at SANSFIRE 2016 for FREE!
