We cannot fight the cyber adversaries alone. As a profession we must lock arms with each other to really get a handle on the attacks, attackers, and their tactics, techniques, and procedures. Not to mention, with a group effort, I believe that everyone can benefit. That is why an organization like INCH360 can help build bridges and great relationships.

Photo & Video Policy

Our meetings and conferences will occasionally have photos of speakers or general audience photography. Please be aware that these events are public events and if you prefer to not be in the photography please let the photographer know at that time. 

By attending INCH360's general public meetings you are implicitly giving permission for general photography, not for commercial use, but by INCH360 in promoting similar events.

Code of Conduct

INCH360 strives to create an environment that encourages the free and open sharing of ideas. 

We’ve created a home at INCH360 and have invited you all inside to be inspired and educated. It is impossible to keep the free and open sharing of ideas without risking someone getting their feelings hurt or toes stepped on. We don’t expect adult and professional behavior at all times; a little mischief can be fun. We do, however, expect you to be respectful of our virtual and physical space and that of our other invited guests. In addition to our physical meetings and conferences, this environment touches a number of online forums including, but not limited to, YouTube, Podcasts and the website.

We have ZERO TOLERANCE for harassment of any kind, be it physical, verbal, or sexual. We define harassment as any unwanted or offensive online or in person communication or behavior.

If someone is engaging with you in a way that makes you afraid or uncomfortable during an in-person event, please inform a member of our team or a staff member of the venue. They are trained in following an escalation path and will help determine the next steps for you to feel safe and ensure your concerns are promptly addressed.

In the end it is the responsibility of us, the organizers of INCH360, to define bad behavior. If you are engaging in bad behavior (e.g. heckling or haranguing speakers, or violating the photo policy), you will be given a warning that your behavior is not acceptable. If you continue, you will be asked to leave or, if the behavior is particularly egregious, you may be immediately ejected from the meeting conference and proper authorities notified. In an online forum, you will be removed from and/or blocked from the format in which the bad behavior was committed.

For online infractions, you will receive one warning from INCH360 staff. Upon a second infraction you will receive a temporary ban from INCH360’s online presence.
