Do you want direct access to the top information security executives within the financial services industry? How about face time with 90% of the largest financial institutions across banking,
brokerage, insurance, card companies and payments processors? FS-ISAC is your go-to source that can make that happen. Why? Because we are a member-driven, non-profit group made up of those
Our mission is to enable the sharing of cybersecurity and physical security information within the financial services sector. We also have a track record of introducing solution providers to
our members through four Summit events, with sponsorship opportunities for Platinum, Gold and Silver levels; regional workshops; member meetings; and other events.
How it Works to Speak and Sponsor
These activities are not available to everyone. Our members have high expectations for the people they want to meet, the solutions they want to see and the content they want to look at. If
you want to join an elite group of sponsors that are dedicated to helping secure the financial services sector, here are the steps you will need to follow:
Secure Budget and Approval for Participation. (Sponsor Prospectus) Submit your presentation abstract, speaker information, etc. If your presentation is accepted, you’ll automatically be accepted as both a sponsor (at the
approved level) and a presenter. If the submitted presentation is not accepted, the Bronze and Additional Sponsorships are available on a first-come, first-served purchase.
FS-ISAC Affiliates do receive a two-day advance opening date (as well as priority booth selection).
Call for Presentations
Submit high quality content that will be thoroughly vetted by our content committee. All sponsorships (except bronze) require an approved presentation. Speaking and sponsorship go
hand in hand.
Platinum Sponsorship includes a 30-minute General Session speaking slot
Gold Sponsorship includes 45-minute thought leadership, subject matter expert presentation at a concurrent breakout
Silver Sponsorship includes a one-hour Solutions Showcase, Product Demonstration (lightening round style) 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.
Innovation Showcase Sponsorship is an eight-minute showcase on the General Sessions stage. Do you have a new or fresh technology or
idea? If you have something truly new and unique to share our audience wants to hear about it. This is a short talk model, it only demands the
audience's attention for a short period of time, decreasing the chance of minds wandering. Keep in mind some of the greatest TED Talks have been as short as five
minutes long! We’re not looking for just a story or a list of facts. Although we are looking for great storytellers, a good idea takes certain evidence or
observations and draws a larger conclusion. You can use AV to convey your message or demo something truly new and innovative. Remember, this is on the General
Session stage to more than 1,000 diverse attendees so you’ll want to have a dynamic presenter and compelling, attention-grabbing content.
Solution Providers, INCLUDING Affiliates, must sponsor at the appropriate level in order to obtain a speaking slot.
Sponsors should review the Sponsor Prospectus for pricing information on available options. By
submitting a call for presentation, you agree to the sponsor level and have appropriate funding secured. A deposit of 20% will be due for approved Platinum, Gold and Silver
sponsors by 27 August 2018. Please be sure to have approved funding and approval to submit a presentation and sponsor at the corresponding level.
Bronze sponsorships do not include a speaking slot. Bronze and the Additional Sponsorship Packages are available for first-come, first-served
purchase. FS-ISAC Affiliates may purchase on 21 August. Non-Affiliate solution providers may begin purchasing on 23 August. Should you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
