We’re finishing off the first day of the Magnet Virtual Summit with a Magnet Social Hour—so join us on May 4 at 4:00PM ET for a casual “Ask Us Anything” hangout with Jad, Geoff, and other members of the Magnet Forensics team. We’ll have our favorite drinks in hand, and we hope you do too! Make sure to sign up to gain access while selecting your sessions during registration.

DFIRFit 2020

We have teamed up with Brian Moran and Kathryn Hedley to plan an entirely virtual #DFIRFit event, so you can participate from wherever you are in the world! On May 12, we ask that members of our community do physical activity (of any kind) for at least 30 minutes and share a picture of it on Twitter, tagging it with #MVSDFIRFit2020 (and yes, costumes are encouraged!)

As in past years, we encourage a charitable donation, but it’s not required. However, we have a special treat for those who do! Make a minimum donation of at least $30 (USD) to one of the three selected charities (Play Like A Girl, Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund, or Gates Foundation Combating COVID-19 Fund), and you’ll qualify for a swanky limited-edition prize pack (please note, supplies are limited!).
