UNITED 2016 will feature several pre-conference activities. So if you can't spend a full day in one of our training sessions, consider an intensive instead.

Just what are these “intensives” you speak of?

Intensive sessions are 3 hours long, highly interactive, and come at no additional cost to your UNITED registration. They provide a chance to learn from top security experts as they dig into a specific topic. Class size is capped at a small number, to maximize time with the instructor, and you'll get 3 CPE credits for attending.

What topics will be covered?

You can choose one of the following four sessions (full descriptions available on the website):

  1. Planning, Building and Testing an IDR Program
  2. Leveraging Custom Content
  3. Incident Response and the Enterprise Investigator
  4. Risk Analysis in the Trenches

How is it different from a training session?

Both trainings and intensives pair you with experts for a security deep dive. The difference is that intensives are much shorter – just 3 hours – and free of cost.

I'm in! What do I do?

Awesome, but you'll want to act fast, since space is limited. Start by registering for UNITED via the website; as part of registration, you'll be asked to select an intensive. (Note that in order to do this, you will not be able to register for any trainings.)
