An Exciting Kick Off to the Magnet Virtual Summit!

Thank you to everyone who joined us on Monday as we kicked off the Magnet Virtual Summit with a great keynote from our Founder & CTO, Jad Saliba, and our VP of Product Management, Geoff MacGillivray. We were excited to get to showcase the freshly released Magnet AXIOM 4.0, while enjoying a bit of Star Wars day.

We also had a great time with our first Magnet Social Hour! It was fantastic getting a chance to catch up with customers we haven’t been able to see in person — and play a round or two of some challenging trivia.

Our next Magnet Social Hour will be taking place on Thursday, May 7 at 12:30PM ET/6:30PM CET and this time we’ll be showing off some of the challenge coins we have in our collections. Be sure to join and have yours ready to share (and/or share it on Twitter using the #MagnetSocialHour hashtag)! Click here to modify your agenda and add this session today

MVS2020 LOADED WITH GREAT PRESENTATIONS

In our first day of labs and lectures we had some great presentations. Our Director of Forensics, Jessica Hyde, started off with a great lab about “Taking a Byte Out of Chromebook Analysis” while guest speakers Alexis Brignoni and Geraldine Blay shared a very well-received presentation, “Pattern of Life Analysis — Timelining User Generated Activity”.
