With a clear directive to transform the organization through the strategic use of technology, ASIS is currently engaged in a broad range of innovative projects—including a major redesign of its primary website, www.asisonline.org.
In January 2018, ASIS launches Phase One of a multiyear project focused on improved and personalized content access, user-centric search and commerce, online community, and integrated systems for learning and certification.
The website facelift includes a more graphical and modern interface for both desktop and mobile devices. One of the key strategies driving the new site is to create a powerful search function that will unify content from a variety of ASIS sources. By creating a search-centric site that allows users to filter results, ASIS will meet its goal of helping members at their "moment of need."
Additionally, some functionality will be moving to other platforms, such as the new community site, launching in February. When the online community is launched, ASIS will provide security professionals with a secure platform to network, share ideas, access resources, and stay connected with peers, chapters, ASIS staff, and industry thought leaders.
ASIS is also upgrading its membership database, including new functionality for engagement, certification, profile management, and data analytics. As a part of the new launch, ASIS will be engaging members to fully update their online profiles, both to help drive online personalization and to comply with the EU General Data Protection Regulation in 2018.
These changes over the first few months of 2018 are Phase One of the process, with a critical emphasis on design, taxonomy, search, and commerce. Two other phases are planned for 2018.
Get ready, the launch of a new, digital ASIS will be here soon!
