FIRST is seeking sponsorships for its virtual edition of the 33rd annual conference on computer security and incident handling the week of June 6, 2021. Well-attended and well-received, the past virtual FIRST conference attracted over 2,500 delegates from over 110 countries. The annual conference is by far one of the most unique international assemblies of incident response and computer security professionals. Sponsorship opportunities are limited and are on a first-come, first-served basis. Interested parties must act quickly to ensure sponsorship participation.
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.
