WASHINGTON, D.C., February 9, 2021 – The Retail & Hospitality Information Sharing and Analysis Center (RH-ISAC), today announced its Call for Speakers for the 2021 RH-ISAC Cyber Intelligence Summit, a prominent cybersecurity conference for retail and hospitality security professionals. The 2021 RH-ISAC Summit will take place in-person at the Lansdowne Resort and Spa on September 28-29, 2021.

Last year, RH-ISAC had more than 400 attendees from retail, hospitality, and travel organizations participate in panels, attend insightful presentations from industry thought leaders, network, and build new relationships to help our industry protect as one. The 2020 virtual RH-ISAC Cyber Intelligence Summit featured 59 speakers, 7 keynotes, and 24 breakout sessions, with different tracks tailored to all levels of an organization – from CISO to analyst – allowing each attendee to gain helpful insights relevant to their profession.

The 2021 RH-ISAC Summit will be in-person, allowing members to connect face-to-face for the first time in over a year in a half! This two-day program will showcase inspirational, engaging, and actionable presentations delivered by industry-leading thought leaders and experts in the solution provider community who are passionate about cybersecurity and information sharing. 

“The root of Summit’s continued success is its focus on member-driven content, led by our Summit Content Working Group. These practitioners ensure we cover leading-edge topics presented by both member and industry experts in the field,” says Suzie Squier, president of the RH-ISAC. “This is more than just a conference for our members. It’s a great opportunity for information security practitioners to come together, network, share, and learn from one another in a safe and trusted space. After such a trying year in 2020, we look forward to gathering the group back together again.”

RH-ISAC calls all enthusiastic parties to submit a presentation for consideration on this year’s agenda. Topics cover a wide range of cyber themes and top-of-mind issues featured as best practice presentations, spotlights on current threats and challenges, facilitated discussions, and inspirational keynote speeches. Content themes to consider include:

  • Security Architecture
  • Risk Management
  • Security Operations
  • Threat Intelligence
  • Special Interest & Resilience

Interested parties may submit a formal proposal to speak here.

Submissions will be accepted until April 30, 2021. Completed submissions will be reviewed and selected by an oversight group of RH-ISAC Core Members, comprised of cybersecurity leaders and technical practitioners from retail and hospitality.
