This policy follows guidance and recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as well as other federal, state, and local requirements. These protocols are for the protection of all (ISC)²-sponsored event attendees, as well as their communities as we travel to and from in-person events.

  • "Full vaccination" means that either 14 days have passed since receiving the second dose of an FDA- or WHO-authorized double-dose vaccines (ex: Pfizer or Moderna) or that 14 days have passed since receiving the sole dose of an FDA- or WHO-authorized single-dose vaccine (ex: Johnson & Johnson).
