Update on Coronavirus
As the Information Security Forum (ISF) approaches next week, we would like to reiterate how much we care about the global critical communications ecosystem and the health of our attendees. We thank you for supporting us and the rest of the community.

We are aware this is a very fluid situation and we are committed to keeping the community regularly updated. In the meantime, ISF is still on for March 10-11, and we look forward to welcoming everyone in Austin. We'll continue to keep you updated as changes occur. Thanks for your understanding as we manage the situation.

Based on the strict U.S. quarantine around COVID-19 and a large number of enhanced on-site measures, we are confident we can execute a safe and successful event for our community. 

Attendance for the conference is full and we currently have a waitlist; cancellations are not outside of normal range. 

To provide attendees with a safe and productive learning and networking environment at the ISF, DIR is closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation for potential impacts on our event attendees. We will be providing hand sanitizer to all attendees and at each booth in the expo hall; Palmer Events Center does have extra hand sanitizer throughout the facility. We will also continue to follow the latest CDC and WHO guidance. In addition, we are actively monitoring updates from the U.S. State Department regarding recent broadening of travel restrictions and other guidance related to COVID-19. We're hoping for a resolution of this difficult situation as soon as practical.

Palmer Events Center is encouraging the following actions for staff and visitors:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer
  • Avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick
  • Stay home when sick
  • Cough or sneeze into your elbow or use a tissue to cover your sneeze, then throw the tissue in the trash
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.

Please know that the health and safety of our attendees and exhibitors is our top priority.
