Our 3rd annual Cyber Threat Intelligence (CTI) Summit will once again be held in Washington DC.

Summit Co-Chairs:Mike Cloppert and Rick Holland

The goal of this summit will be to equip attendees with knowledge on the tools, methodologies and processes they need to move forward with cyber threat intelligence. Attendees that are either new to CTI or more mature in their CTI journey should be able to take away content and immediately apply it to their day jobs. The SANS What Works in Cyber Threat Intelligence Summit will bring attendees who are eager to hear this information and learn about tools, techniques, and solutions that can help address these needs.
