Code of Conduct

(go look for and reference a good one?)

FIRST ethics reference somewhere on this page?

2.5. Ethical Considerations

Adapted from

We believe that successful vulnerability coordination requires an open exchange of ideas.

This exchange is only possible in an environment that fosters dignity, understand-ing, and mutual respect, and where participants rec-ognize the inherent worth of every person and group. We have adopted this code of conduct to define the behaviors we support (and don't support) at our con-ference.Harassment is never appropriate for any conference venue, including during presentations, workshops, so-cial events, or on social media. We define harassment as unwelcome or hostile behavior, including speech that intimidates, creates discomfort, or interferes with a person's participation or opportunity for participa-tion; verbal threats or demands; degrading language; intimidation; harassing photography or recording; in-appropriate physical contact; sexual imagery; unwel-come sexual attention; stalking; unsolicited physical contact; and sustained disruption of presentations and other events.We expect conference participants to follow this code of conduct at conference and workshop venues and conference-related social events. We expect offend-ers who are asked to stop their harassing behavior to comply immediately.We do not tolerate any form of harassment or of-fensive behavior at our conferences. If a partici-pant engages in harassing behavior, the offender may be expelled from further participation in the conference (with no refund) by an SEI conference representative.If you are being harassed, witness someone else be-ing harassed, or have other concerns, please alert the conference chair, a member of the conference staff at the FloCon Registration Desk, or a member of the ho-tel security staff.

The design of VINCE corresponds to the having participants/reporters and vendors in closer comms. The CERT/CC is no longer acting as email proxy and mailing list (approval) moderator. We expect participants to be professional and respectful. Disagreement is OK, personal jibes are not. Participants can edit or delete their own messages. CERT/CC can edit? or delete any messages. We only expect to edit/delete/moderate when needed.
