The International Association of Professional Security Consultants (IAPSC) have sold numerous speaking slots to manufacturers.

This is part of their $5,000 'Platinum' sponsorship, giving paying manufacturers a "15-minute presentation to a dedicated audience of consultants" at their annual conference.

IAPSC provided IPVM detailed feedback on the program, emphasizing that the manufacturers are 'vetted' and that "no expectation or requirement that any payment of services or purchase of products will result" from such sponsorship.

Inside this note, we examine the program, IAPSC's explanation and our concerns.
