Forensics Summits

Our DFIR Summits are designed to help you enrich your Cyber Intel, Threat Hunting, and Digital Forensics & Incident Response skills.

DFIR Summits are two-day events that focus on the most current topics in Cyber Threat Intelligence, Threat Hunting, and Digital Forensics & Incident Response. Our Summits feature user panels, debates, vendor demos and short talks by industry experts to help you get the most up-to-date information security solutions in the least amount of time.

DFIR Summits are the perfect events to:
  • Get the latest secrets from the best minds in the DFIR industry
  • Learn tough lessons from real practitioners - what really works (and what doesn't)
  • Gain hands-on experience with top industry experts
  • Get answers to the even the hardest questions
  • Network with colleagues in the community

For many Summits, we run a public Call for Presenters (CFP). If you wish to be notified of open CFPs and their deadlines, please send a note to to be added to our notification list.
