Information Security Forum Sponsorship

Engage with security decision makers at IANS events.

For 15 years CISOs and their teams have looked to IANS Forums for guidance, peer networking and information gathering related to their most difficult challenges. IANS Forum events are different: there are no booths or tables. Instead, sponsors deliver information to attendees within a dedicated boardroom setting.

Solution providers rely on IANS to provide a platform for direct engagement with CISOs and their organizations. Your organization can engage with top information security teams in this unique setting.

About the Forum

IANS Forums are two-day regional events hosted in 12 major cities. Each forum garners an attendance of between 150 and 250 Information Security professionals from practitioner organizations — including companies from a wide range of industries within the Fortune 1000. Solution Providers present their offerings during eight 35-minute “Technology Spotlight Sessions” over the course of the event.

These sessions are delivered in your own private meeting room, and are interactive discussions with end-users and decision makers. Your message will rise above the noise that is typical at traditional trade show booths and tables.

Attendees from many major industries are represented, including Banking/Financial Services, Insurance, Government Telecommunications, Healthcare, Higher Education, Heavy Manufacturing, and High Technology/Services.
