hi, what's the difference between debriefing & briefing?

seems either sentence is ok:

1) Let me give you guys a briefing of the meeting held yesterday.

2) Let me give you guys a debriefing of the meeting held yesterday.


thanks,

Difference = when it happens
briefing = BEFORE the meeting
debriefing = AFTER the meeting
