After revealing in December it would rebrand its annual security conference from the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits to the Global Security Exchange (GSX), ASIS Int’l has revealed its first look at the revamped event.
The organization says the refreshed name and brand reflects its 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.
“GSX is setting a new bar for education, networking and security product and service excellence — addressing the issues critical to all sectors of the global marketplace,” says Ron Rosenbaum, chief global marketing and business development officer, ASIS Int’l. “In 2017, we saw the beginning of this transformation, and with our 2018 event focus, Security Solutions. Multiplied, we will deliver a best-in-class environment for education, networking and business building, resulting in year-round benefits for attendees and exhibitors alike.”
GSX will take place in Las Vegas, Sept. 23-27, in partnership with InfraGard and the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA). It’s said event will offer attendees enhanced opportunities for collaboration and engagement, with a focus on diversified programming, experiential learning and hands-on access to the newest technologies and solutions on the market.
ASIS Int’l President Richard E. Chase, CPP, PCI, PSP, noted that “as the global voice for the security profession, ASIS is focused on year-round success in the form of professional development, certification, fostering peer-to-peer communities, and the development of standards, white papers, and best practices. Convening the industry at GSX is a critical component of our mission to advance security worldwide.”
Registration will open mid-March. For more information, check out the video above and event’s new website: www.gsx.org.
