ASIS Strategic Plan


Building off its 2020-2024 Strategic Plan, ASIS International has developed a new strategic plan with a vision to create a safer world by uniting security professionals globally to grow resilient communities. The plan was created through collaboration with members, volunteer leaders, and global partners to emphasize outreach and harness the collective expertise of security professionals worldwide. It centers on ASIS taking on the role of the facilitator to cultivate a dynamic, inclusive community through five key steps: collaborative expansion of customized offerings, investing in a diverse global team, utilizing data-driven technology resources, defining new membership segments, and redefining security's role as a business imperative. This comprehensive, forward-looking strategy positions ASIS as a pioneering force that promotes engagement, knowledge sharing, and significant member value on a global scale.
