Sponsorship Opportunities

FIRST, the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams, seeks sponsorships for its 31st Annual Conference to be held at the Edinburgh International Convention Center, June 16-21, 2019

Well-attended and well-received, the Annual FIRST Conference attracts over 800 participants from more than 60 countries around the globe. The Annual Conference is by one of the most unique international assemblies of incident response and computer security professionals.

Sponsorship opportunities are limited and are on a firstcome, first-served basis. Interested parties should act quickly to ensure sponsorship participation. Be a part of the 2018 FIRST Sponsorship Team!

It’s both unique and essential that FIRST is a non-commercial organization, and by supporting FIRST through sponsorship we help the organization to remain non-partisan.
