The language above has been added to exhibitor contracts for RSA Conference 2015.
Zenobia Godschalk, a communications practitioner in the security industry and vocal critic of so-called “booth babes” at conferences like RSA and Black Hat, dropped me a line to say RSA added the language to force vendors to stop with the skimpy clothing.
It appears the years of blowback over booth babes hasÂ had an affect, at least in RSA’s case.
In an email, Zenobia said, “We are thrilled to report that RSA has actually changed their language in their vendor agreements this year! It now includes the following new paragraphs below, specifically around appropriate professional attire that can allow all attendees to feel comfortable.”
