Organisers have made a “last call” for attendees to register for the SANS Digital Forensics and Incident Response (DFIR) summit, which will take place ahead of SANS Forensics Prague 2013 this October. The weeklong event begins on the 6th of October with the 4th annual DFIR Summit which will focus on the most pressing security and technology issues facing the global forensics and incident response community.
The two days of summit sessions will focus on actionable content based on the real-world experience of leading thinkers in the field to ensure attendees are able to utilise the ideas presented when they return to their respective organisations. Speakers from around the world will cover topics and themes such as Open source DFIR, Malware analysis, Network audits, Timeline creation & review, ICS & SCADA forensics, Insider theft of intellectual property and DFIR in cloud-based applications.
Directly following the summit, SANS will be running four training courses as part of the Forensics Prague event which welcomed a capacity audience last year. A new course on the roster this year is FOR526: Windows Memory Forensics In-Depth taught by Jess Garcia and Jesse Kornblum. This In-Depth course is critical for any serious investigator who wishes to tackle advanced forensic and incident response cases.
Rob Lee, SANS Fellow and course author will be teaching the FOR508: Advanced Computer Forensic Analysis and Incident Response course which has been updated to reflect a dramatic increase in sophisticated attacks against nearly every type of organisation.
FORENSICS 610: Reverse-Engineering Malware will be taught by Lenny Zeltser, a GIAC Security Expert (GSE), Senior Faculty Member at the SANS Institute and Incident handler at the Internet Storm Center.
The event will also host the FOR408: Computer Forensic Investigations - Windows In-Depth course taught by Chad Tilbury and Christian Prickaerts. This course focuses on the critical knowledge of the Windows Operating System that every digital forensic analyst needs to investigate computer incidents successfully.
The SANS Forensics event reached capacity last year and spaces are limited so interested parties are recommended to sign up as soon as possible.
