Member Presentations: A Member Presentation is a proposal for either a panel or standalone or workshop provided by FS-ISAC members and/or FS-ISAC staff. Panels are limited to three (3) participants and one (1) moderator. There is no cost to FS-ISAC members for speaking sessions. FS-ISAC does not reimburse any travel expenses or pay speaker fees. Questions regarding content should be sent to content@fsisac.com.

Sponsors Presentations: Sector Advisors, Affiliates, Early Stage Affiliates and solution providers must sponsor in order to participate. Submit as an individual or in collaboration with a financial firm. Sponsors must submit as a Platinum, Gold, or Silver Solutions Showcase sponsor session. The prospectus and sponsorship pricing can be found here.

Please note: Member submissions that include a sponsor will be considered sponsored sessions. Sponsored sessions are required to fill out the CFP form as a Solution Provider.

Submissions are evaluated by the Content Committee, which comprises FS-ISAC members, and staff.


Submissions are evaluated by the Content Committee, consisting of FS-ISAC staff and member subject matter experts.

All submissions are reviewed and vetted by our Content Committee and FS-ISAC Content Team 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). Platinum 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 people with marketing, sales or product titles.


  • Selection and Timeliness of the Topic   
    Is this topic important to Summit attendees? Are member firms struggling to get their arms around it? The Committee assesses both the technical merits and potential interest of the presentation proposal.
  • Educational Value of the Topic   
    Attendees appreciate hearing real implementation stories - both domestically and internationally. Members like to leave the Summit equipped with alternative approaches and “lessons learned”, something to take back to the office.


The Call for Presentation (CFP) submission portal is open until 2 June 2023.


The track and associated topics listed below provide a representational, NOT exhaustive, list of what attendees would like to see, and how we may group submissions into concurrent tracks. A note that some topics, such as AI/ML, ATT&CK, Cloud, Emerging Technologies, etc., can be applied to many of the tracks and while not called out, they are in scope for this event.

With this year’s theme, Forging a Resilient Future, in mind, the following themes will receive extra consideration:

  • Building a Diverse Workforce
  • Securing the Supply Chain
  • Mastering the Ordinary with the Extraordinary (“Do the basic stuff well”)
  • Cryptography (including Post-Quantum, Agility)
  • Combatting Cyber Fraud
  • Protecting Digital Assets


  1. Presentation deck (a complete deck is preferred, a DRAFT is acceptable, and an annotated outline is needed at the minimum) and all supporting materials (videos, supporting research findings, polling placeholders, etc).
  2. All speaker details including name, title, phone, email, biography and headshot of each. Sponsors will also provide Event POC contact and Contract Signer details.

When submitting presentations, we recommend you over-communicate and provide more information, speaker notes, etc., to help the Content Committee better understand your presentation and make informed decisions about the session content. You may of course update your draft presentation to a final version after acceptance.
