BIO-ISAC Friends Forum



If you've received an invitation to this page, you are a friend to the leadership roundtable of the founders of BIO-ISAC and a known leader and contributor to the security of the bioeconomy and its research and manufacturing components in National Security, Biomanufacturing, BioPharma, Soft/Hardware Vendors, BioProducts, and Agriculture. 

As you may have heard, BIO-ISAC will formally launch in August, at the closing day of  Biohacking Village at DEF CON on August 8, 2021. 


BIO-ISAC leadership is inviting a very limited group of friends to become Founding Members, offering membership dues at a prorated rate of $25,000 for the remainder of 2021. We are looking for a commitment to seed funding of $25,000, with a renewal fee of $75,000 in January 2022 (totaling $100,000).


In exchange for helping stand up our well-documented and much-needed effort, we offer: 

  • Legacy recognition as a founding member of BIO-ISAC

  • One (1) Advisory Board founding leader role

  • Up to two (2) additional Advisory Board participant roles

  • Member-only roundtable invitations (anticipated monthly, starting June 2021)

  • Inform creation of the final incident response CVE for the bioeconomy

  • Access to the Bioeconomy threat stream and discussion forum (anticipated August 2021) 

  • Curated speaking invitations for widely attended events and broadcasts

  • Peer-to-peer information sharing and member strategy sessions

  • Scope and inform research white paper development and policy and regulatory efforts (including much-needed incident recovery guidance)

  • Recognition as a 2021 Biohacking Village Sponsor (and device lab participation, when applicable, including)

  • Recognition as a Founding Member at the BIO-ISAC launch in August 2021, including press release mention(s) as appropriate

  • Invitation(s) to the inaugural BIO-ISAC Members Meeting (anticipated Fall 2021), which includes a closed-door briefing from our partners at the National Academies


Note: Participating founding members will be invited to a call in late June to discuss other urgent response needs, membership benefits, and details regarding the August launch.
