Beware of Unofficial Attendee Scams

2020 vIITSEC Attendee Lists
vIITSEC exhibitors and attendees have reported receiving solicitations from vendors NOT affiliated with vIITSEC – specifically regarding attendee list sales. Please beware of solicitations claiming to have NTSA registration lists, these are scams! We would like to remind all participants that NTSA does not distribute or sell an attendee mailing list or e-mail list for vIITSEC. Any solicitation claiming to have a list of vIITSEC attendees is fraudulent. vIITSEC’s official registration provider is RHQ and NTSA has no affiliation with any other providers.
