The 29th annual conference welcomed 720 attendees from 68 countries and featured keynote speakers from Facebook, Google, the University of Oxford, and Microsoft Research.

  • Adli Wahid attended the FIRST Board meeting as a board member. Adli was re-elected as a board member for a further two years.
  • An MoU between FIRST and APNIC was signed to strengthen collaboration in capacity development and joint activities in the Asia Pacific region.
  • Adli took the opportunity to meet members of APCERT and Tonga CERT to discuss future collaboration and training activities.
