The Forum for Incident Response and Security Teams is the premier organization and recognized global leader in incident response.

FIRST brings together a variety of computer security incident response teams from government, commercial, and educational organizations. FIRST aims to foster cooperation and coordination in incident prevention, to stimulate rapid reaction to incidents, and to promote information sharing among members and the community at large.

I recently joined the FIRST community as a liaison member, and I am looking forward to contributing to the community, as well as benefiting from the large professional network and body of knowledge that it provides.
