A number of people have asked me about the closing date for the nominations
for the Forensic 4:cast Awards. Well here it is: March 31, 2017.
I will be accepting nominations as long as it is still March 31 somewhere in the world. I will then spend a couple of days tallying the nominations before revealing the final 3 for each category in the voting stage.
Don't forget that the awards will take place at the SANS DFIR Summit 2017 in Austin, Texas. The summit runs June 22-23 but SANS also runs classes through June 29. This is a great opportunity to take that SANS class you've been eyeing for a few months. Most of the classes have had significant updates in the last few months..

I'll also be giving the same presentation at the SANS DFIR Summit in June. Check out the impressive DFIR Summit Agenda: https://www.sans.org/event/digital-forensics-summit-2017/summit-overview/
Speaking of SANS, I've recently left Digital Discovery to take a position with the SANS Online Training team as a Subject Matter Expert. That means that if you have a question about one of the DFIR classes, I'll probably be answering it. I also get to test the labs for the classes and do a bunch of other fun stuff. I'm really looking forward to it.
Hope to see you all at this year's DFIR Summit in June!
