Speaking Sponsorships require budget commitment from your organization and approval by the Summit Content Committee. If your speaking sponsorship is approved you will be immediately invoiced in USD. Sponsorships are limited and subject to a shopping cart time stamp in order to ensure applications are processed in order of received. If there is a disputed sponsorship, the timestamp will determine the company that applied first.

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.
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.
Showcase the Scope of Expertise of any Co-Speakers, Moderators or Panelists
Are you considered an expert on this topic by your professional peers? You should be very well-versed on the topic and equally skilled at presenting.
Selection and Timeliness of the Topic
Is this a topic of current importance to Summit attendees? Do you have a fresh approach? The Committee assesses both the technical merits and the potential interest in your presentation.
Develop a Unique Approach to the Topic
Recognize that your professional peers may be submitting their proposals on a similar topic. Evaluate how to make your proposed topic stand out from the crowd.
