Advisors contribute to the selection of educational content for the conference through an educational content selection interview. During this conversation Advisors discuss the topics of greatest relevance to their position and company in the areas of: information security, business continuity, disaster recovery, infrastructure, and communications. The aggregate of the Advisory Council’s input is used for the selection of seminar content at the conference. Six weeks prior to the conference, the Advisors attend a web-based planning meeting during which they review the proposed educational content. During this meeting, the Council offers suggested changes to content and format. Additionally, this process is intended to ensure seminar content abides by the requirement that all educational material be vendor-agnostic.
