Why Sponsor DFRWS Workshops AND Conferences?

  • DFRWS was established in 2001 and is the longest running event dedicated to digital forensics research. Much of the research that has shaped the field was introduced at a DFRWS conference.
  • DFRWS average annual attendance is 115 to 200 per conference.
  • DFRWS is a non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the field of forensics by furthering research, sharing information and bringing digital forensics community leaders from Academia, Government, Law Enforcement and Industry together in an informal setting.
  • DFRWS attendees are most often the leaders and decision makers within their organizations.
  • DFRWS has a global reach, a dedicated following and provides excellent visibility for our sponsors.
  • DFRWS events provide an excellent venue to showcase your products and services, network, attract new customers, develop stronger relationships with current customers, find experienced talent and gather ideas to help your company identify and adapt to the growing needs of this community.
  • DFRWS.org considers our sponsors as partners and packages provide an excellent, lasting value. Sponsorship packages can be customized to meet the individual requirements of each sponsor and tailored to fit any budget.
  • DFRWS is a volunteer driven organization so sponsorship contributions go directly toward event production, the dissemination of digital forensics research and ongoing support of the forensics community.
