FIRST Symposia event are restricted to FIRST members only and provide a discussion forum for FIRST member teams to share information about vulnerabilities, incidents, tools and all other issues that affect the operation of incident response and security teams.
Symposia typically provide a full day of plenary sessions for informal discussions and presentations on topics of interest to the FIRST membership. They are more sensitive in nature and related to the day-to-day work of participants. Day two is a series of interactive hands-on classes taught by leading security experts in small groups of FIRST team members.
The FIRST Symposia are typically hosted by members, and since 2005, are being organized on a regional basis in Latin-America, North-America, Europe and Asia-Pacific.
The FIRST Symposium is held in conjunction with the TF-CSIRT meeting. Since this will be a joint event with TF-CSIRT - the European CSIRT regional initiative- there will be some sessions restricted to TF-CSIRT members only and others open to both communities.
This year's event is hosted and co-sponsored by La Caixa.
