Enfuse - FAQ
Q. Why attend Enfuse?
A. Enfuse is the culmination of fifteen years of “CEIC” and is the only conference that fosters collaboration between specialists in cybersecurity, incident response, digital forensics, e-discovery and enterprise investigations. Enfuse offers lectures and hands-on labs delivered by industry experts, giving attendees the opportunity to test drive the latest techniques, methodologies, and technology. For more information on the benefits of attending Enfuse, or to download our Justification Letter, please visit our benefits of attendance page.
Q. Do you offer student discounts?
A. We offer a special academic rate of $895 for eligible students and professors of college/university cybersecurity and forensics programs. Proof of eligibility is required. Please contact us for more information.
Q. Can I attend the conference if I live outside of the United States?
A. Yes. Enfuse is a global conference. Delegates from more than 50 countries worldwide attend Enfuse every year. Some international governments and organizations require an official invitation to send employees to our conference. An invitation letter can be provided upon request, but is not to be considered sponsorship to the United States. You will be strictly invited to attend the Enfuse conference from May 21-24, 2018. Participants will remain on their home country's payroll, continuing to bear all registration, travel and lodging costs and incidental expenses. If participants wish to extend the stay for personal reasons, it will be at their own expense. For information on obtaining travel visas see our travel page or visit US Visa.
Q. Do I have to pre-enroll for sessions?
A. Yes. You will need to pre-enroll to attend the labs and lectures. Enrollment will open following the release of the agenda. Enrollment is based on the date you register for the conference, so the first to register for Enfuse are the first able to enroll for sessions. You will receive notification via email announcing when you are able to enroll. Session enrollment is currently scheduled to open by groups based on the date of registration as follows:
- Group 1: Register by 12/10 for Earlybird Session Enrollment - two weeks prior to General Enrollment opening
- Group 2: Register between 12/11 and 1/31 to enroll up to one week prior to General Enrollment opening
- Group 3: Register after 2/1 for General Session Enrollment
Q. What will happen if I register late?
A. The majority of all attendees state that the labs are the number one reason that they attend Enfuse. Registering early is the best way to guarantee that you will get into all the sessions you want. Enfuse has several tracks, with over 100 sessions to choose from, and we have increased the capacity in several classrooms this year, so you have an even better opportunity to get into the sessions of your choice. If you register late, you will have the option to put your name on a waiting list located outside every session room. It is our goal to get everyone into the sessions of their choice in the most comfortable and safest way possible.
Q. Can I change my sessions once I select them?
A. You can modify your selections at any time prior to the conference by using your e-mail address and confirmation number to access your online registration. Same-day changes are not allowed on-site (as the registration system is synced with the badge scanners each morning) but you can waitlist for a different session if you wish to change classes on-site.
Q. I can't attend all the sessions that I want to, is it possible to get the handouts from all?
A. All the handouts and presentations provided by speakers will be available to all conference attendees. You will be provided with a link to download the presentations from the Enfuse website following the conference. Updated session materials will also be available at the print stations located in the conference hall.
Q. Do I need to bring a laptop to sessions?
A. You may bring your own laptop for note taking purposes but session related materials will only be available on the computers we provide, specifically in the lab sessions.
Q. Are there breaks in between sessions?
A. The schedule for Enfuse has been set up with a minimum of 15 minutes in between sessions to allow time to move to your next session. Several of the breaks for Enfuse have been expanded to 30, 60 and even 90 minutes (for lunch) to allow you plenty of extra time to visit the exhibit hall.
Q. Are meals provided as part of the registration fee?
A. Meals during conference hours are included in the registration fee. Breakfast is provided on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday; and lunch is provided on Tuesday and Wednesday, as well as beverage and snack breaks during the day. Food is also provided at the Welcome Reception on Monday evening.
Q. How do I renew my EnCE or EnCEP certification at Enfuse?
A. You must attend a minimum of 10 sessions at Enfuse to renew your EnCE/EnCEP certification. It is imperative that you use your badge to scan in to every session you attend, as we use the badge scans to verify attendance and grant certification renewal. Following the conference, you can download and submit the renewal form from the Enfuse website. If you have any further questions please contact Guidance training.
Q. Can I get CPE credits for attending?
A. Yes. Almost all of the Enfuse sessions are CPE certified. CPE Forms will be available at the registration desk on the second day of the conference. You can complete the CPE form onsite and return it to the registration desk at the end of the conference, or mail it in to the address provided on the form. Be absolutely certain that you use your badge to scan in and out of all sessions, as the badge scans are used for verification and granting of credits.
Q. Can I bring a guest to any of the events?
A. We do offer a guest pass for the Monday evening Welcome Reception, which you can purchase online or on-site for $75. Guests are not permitted in the sessions. You must have a full registration badge to enter any of the sessions, keynotes, or Expo Hall.
Q. Can I buy a pass for just the Expo Hall? What about single-day passes?
A. Expo Hall only passes are restricted to employees of companies that are sponsoring/exhibiting in the Expo Hall. There are no single day passes available.
