SIA Seeks to Make ISC Education Commercial Free

Author: John Honovich, Published on Oct 19, 2009

A common complaint for seminars at trade shows is that they tend to be too commercial and too vendor specific. Sometimes this occurs indirectly and other times it is a result of a sponsorship package (pay X and get a speaking slot).

Responding to concerns expressed from previous shows, the Security Industry Association is making a push to ensure that educational presentations are commercial-free. This effort was recently described in a podcast and plans to take effect for ISC West 2010.
