During a Solutions Showcase members are invited to join Silver sponsors for a technology showcase where the latest technical innovations will be on display. In this relaxed setting,
attendees select up to three technologies they’d like to see. These information-packed 15-minute sessions will be presented by technology experts from our vendor sponsors, will be
use-case-driven and will be tailored to the unique needs of FS-ISAC members. Each sponsor will present three times to a different audience.

FS-ISAC does not reimburse any travel expenses or pay speaker fees.
Submissions are evaluated by the Summit Content Committee, which comprises 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 person with a
marketing, sales or product title.
Tips for Selection
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 are weighted higher. Members value hearing
the lessons learned and different approaches directly from their peers.
