The Conference

The annual FIRST Conference and workshop event is the only event of its kind. This event is specifically focused on the field of computer security incident handling and response. Past conferences have been held in Karlsruhe, Germany and Boston, Massachusetts, U.S.. Each of these conferences were international in scope and attendance with presentations on the latest in incident response and prevention, vulnerability analysis, and computer security. Additionally, these conferences served as the foundation for the improvement of computer security worldwide via sharing of goals, ideas, and information.

The 1996 8th Annual FIRST Conference promises to continue this ground breaking work. Occuring in the heart of the Silicon Valley, home of the microprocessor and the heartbeat of computing, this year's conference will continue to promote FIRST organization goals of worldwide coordination and cooperation.

Who is FIRST?

The Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST), is an international organization that brings together a variety of computer security incident response teams. These teams include government, commercial, and academic organizations.

World-wide, FIRST aims to foster cooperation and coordination in incident prevention, to prompt rapid reaction to incidents, and to promote information sharing among members and the global community at large.

Further information about the FIRST organization is available at the FIRST WWW.
