The Fairmont Washington, D.C.
Attackers are improving their techniques and stealth daily. Are your skills keeping pace?
Why should you attend the 2009 SANS What Works in Forensics and Incident Response Summit?
If Forensics and Incident response professionals who continually hone their knowledge base and skill set are the only ones who have a prayer of keeping pace with the attackers. And the attackers are aiming high - as evidenced by the recent disclosure that the World Bank Group's computer network had been under siege and was raided repeatedly by cyberintruders for more than a year. The breach of 18 servers has left management in a crisis situation scrambling for answers as to "why and how" and to search for a solution. Financial institutions are not the only targets; hacker attempts are on the rise. Even the military's most secure systems have now been successfully penetrated.
The 2009 SANS What works in Forensics and Incident Response Summit being held in Washington DC on July 6 & 7 gives you access to the state of the art in computer forensic techniques. Top industry leaders, forensics and incident response professionals and vendors will discuss the latest defenses and technologies in a series of highly interactive sessions focused on effective incident response and mitigation, forensic analysis, recovery as a result of a data breach and e-Discovery requests. Expert forensics analysts and law enforcement personnel will share their latest lessons learned from the trenches and the secrets of their forensic approach. And you will leave the Summit armed with answers to your questions as well as new techniques and solutions that you can put to use immediately.
Each presentation or panel discussion at the Summit is built around an interactive Q&A session that gives you the opportunity to grill the experts so that you leave with answers to the tough policy, process and technical questions. Case Studies will be shared that illustrate best practices as well as highlight the pitfalls to avoid. Vendor panels will give you the opportunity to compare tools side-by-side and ask the vendors directly the probing questions that will help you determine the best solutions for your organization.
Whether your organization performs forensic analysis in-house or relies on third-party analysis, the SANS What Works in Forensics and Incident Response Summit is the only event that gives you a single source for information about the unique challenges you face daily.
