34th Annual FIRST Conference | "Neart Le Chéile: Strength Together"

FIRST is an international confederation of trusted computer incident response teams who cooperatively handle computer security incidents and promote incident prevention programs.

The Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST) is an international not-for-profit organization bringing together a variety of security and incident response teams. FIRST is comprised of over 600 member teams from 99 countries representing government agencies, academia, commercial enterprises, and financial corporations.

Effective internet response is a global task. Based on a peer-to-peer network governance model, Computer Security Incident Response Teams (CSIRTs), Product Security Incident Response Teams (PSIRTs), and independent security researchers work together to limit the damage of security incidents. Incidents are not confined to one cultural or political corner of the internet, nor do they respect physical borders or boundaries.

The FIRST annual conference promotes worldwide coordination and cooperation among computer security and incident response teams (CSIRTs). The conference provides a forum for sharing goals, ideas, and information on how to improve computer security on a global scale. This year’s annual conference is scheduled to take place in-person with limited virtual components, June 26 through July 1, 2022 at the Convention Centre Dublin, in Dublin, Ireland.
