ASIS International, the US-based association for security managers, is changing the name of its annual security conference, from the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits to the Global Security Exchange (GSX). The newly branded event will run in Las Vegas, Nevada, from September 23 to 27, 2018, with InfraGard and ISSA.
Peter J O’Neil, CAE, Chief Executive Officer, ASIS International said: “In what will be our 64th year of delivering the security industry’s flagship event, the Global Security Exchange, or GSX for short, will build upon the change and reinvention introduced at ASIS 2017. This name reflects the Society’s commitment to unite the full spectrum of security—cyber and operational security professionals from all verticals across the private and public sector, allied organizations and partners, and the industry’s leading service and solution providers—for the most comprehensive security event in the world.”
ASIS say that the exhibit hall will be transformed into a learning lab, showcasing new and emerging products and technologies such as machine learning, robotics, forensic analysis, and artificial intelligence.
Thomas J Langer, CPP, 2017 president, ASIS International said: “From the Internet of Everything and soft target attacks to data breaches and drones, the velocity of change and risks knows no boundaries. GSX fills the industry’s need for a global event that brings together the entire security industry, to exchange ideas and lessons learned, keep informed of current and emerging risks, and gain exposure to the emerging technologies shaping society and our workplaces.”
The rebrand will launch at the 2018 ASIS International Leadership Conference, running from January 16 to 19, in Arlington, Virginia. Visit https://www.asisonline.org.
