PLEASE READ: Solution Providers and Affiliates must sponsor at the appropriate level in order to obtain a speaking sponsorship. Sponsors should review the Sponsor Prospectus for pricing information.

One (1), 45-minute Concurrent Breakout Session speaking slot.
Learn more about the Gold sponsorships.
One (1), eight-minute presentation. Share your new and emerging concepts and breakthrough innovations. This presentation is delivered on the main stage in front of the entire Summit audience to display your progressive and cutting-edge idea. Learn more about the Innovation Showcase sponsorship.
One (1), 15-minute showcase repeated three (3) times in an hour. The Solutions Showcase will display the latest technical innovations in cyber-awareness, proactive security and defense. Within the one-hour session, members will select up to three, 15-minute sessions to attend. After each 15-minute session, members will move to the next session. This is structured similar to a lightning round. Learn more about the Silver Sponsorship.

Submissions are evaluated by the Summit Content Committee, which consist of FS-ISAC staff and member industry experts.
All submissions are reviewed and vetted by our Content Committee for technical merits, expertise, topic selection, approach and interest to attendees. Presentation proposals are most often rejected because they are sales pitches (except Silver Sponsorship). Platium and Gold Sponsors are educational, content driven sessions that provide actionable, relevant and useful information to attendees that do not require the purchase of products/services that you represent. These should be delivered by subject matter experts and not a marketing, sales or product title.
Educational Value of the Topic
The primary reason that sessions aren’t selected is because they are a thinly disguised sales/product pitch. Sessions based on industry thought leadership, case studies and real implementation lessons learned - both domestically and internationally – are given priority. Successful sessions provide practical, operational information or advance security concepts and understanding across the industry.
Include a Member Firm
Case studies in which a member participates is typically weighted higher. Members value hearing the lessons learned and different approaches directly from their peers.
