A Word of Caution: Avoid List and Hotel Scammers Claiming RSAC Affiliation


Posted on by Michelle Adams-Dixon

Emails from scammers/fraudsters can seem legitimate, so it’s important to be vigilant and keep an eye out for anything suspicious. If you receive any communication purporting to be from RSA Conference (RSAC) or any of our partners or employees about which you are uncertain or suspicious, do not respond and, particularly, do not provide personal or confidential information.

Often, close to Conference, we see a spike in companies that are soliciting RSAC exhibitors with lists that allegedly contain RSAC attendee information. RSAC does not sell attendee information to third-party data aggregators for commercial purposes. Any message making these claims is not affiliated with RSAC. Be on the lookout for any suspicious emails, and don’t let these third-party solicitors deceive you.

Additionally, onPeak is the only hotel provider endorsed by RSA Conference 2022. If you are contacted by other third-party companies offering hotel assistance, please be aware they are not endorsed by our event. Entering into financial agreements with these companies can have costly consequences and are not protected by event management. If you are contacted by a fraudulent service provider, please be sure to inform RSAC at information@rsaconference.com.

If you have questions about a communication’s affiliation to RSAC, please send an email to information@rsaconference.com along with a screenshot of the communication. For more information about RSAC privacy practices, please review the RSAC Privacy Policy.
