Health & Safety Information
Americas Spring Summit 2023

Last updated on 1 November 2022

For many years, FS-ISAC has been entrusted with its members’ safety and security. We are aware that there are still many concerns around health and safety with the ongoing pandemic.

FS-ISAC requests that attendees stay current with all vaccines intended to protect against COVID-19 and seasonal illnesses to keep yourself and colleagues safe and healthy. Based on current conditions, FS-ISAC does not plan to request vaccine and/or COVID-19 test information for 2023 events, however we will continue to monitor health conditions and reserve the right to change attendance requirements if conditions warrant. (FS-ISAC will give ample time to prepare should a change be necessary)

As the pandemic evolves, FS-ISAC may adjust this guidance.
For more information, please read the FAQs below.

1. Will FS-ISAC collect vaccine info or test results?

FS-ISAC does not plan to ask attendees to show that they meet the conditions for attendance. FS-ISAC will update attendees should conditions warranted. If FS-ISAC needs to shift, it will not collect or store the vaccine or test information.

2. Will there be socially distanced seating opportunities?

FS-ISAC will be hosting as many events outdoors as possible however will also have ample socially distance seating options at meal events and general sessions.

3. How can I let people know onsite if I want to stay socially distanced?

FS-ISAC will be implementing a red, amber and green sticker program at the event to highlight attendees’ requests on social distancing.

Green or no sticker: Back to the ways things were pre-pandemic

Amber: Being cautious

Red: Please no contact

These stickers will be available to include on attendee’s name badges at registration.

4. What happens if someone feels ill under 14 days before the event and cannot find a substitute?

For paying attendees, FS-ISAC cannot issue a refund under 14 days before the event. Instead, FS-ISAC will give a credit for a future summit. For comp’d attendees, summit passes are not transferrable to future summits.

5. What happens if someone feels ill on-site?

The health of our attendees is a top priority, and as such, FS-ISAC asks anyone who feels ill to leave the event until they feel better. FS-ISAC will give further guidance as it gets closer to the event itself.

6. What should prohibit me from attending the event?

We ask attendees to not attend the event if they have any of the following: a fever over 100.4°F, chills, persistent cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, new loss of taste or smell, vomiting, and diarrhea, or other unusual symptoms.

7. Will you notify attendees if someone who has been at the event tests positive during or after the Summit?

Please be aware that even at the end of the pandemic, large events still carry a risk for attendees. Please note that FS-ISAC does not disclose any attendee's health information during or after the event, so each participant should take the steps they feel necessary to stay safe, including following mask and social distancing guidelines.
