ASIS International and ASW, the German Federation for Corporate Security, are organising a joint full-day event in Berlin.

The ASIS/ASW Global Security Forum focuses on the security challenges of globalisation. As economies go global, so do criminal organisations. Corporate security departments as well as law enforcement need to organise themselves globally as well to stay ahead of the curve. Volker Wagner, President of ASW and Chairman of the ASIS European Convergence and ESRM Subcommittee, will chair the Forum.

The event will be preceded by an optional dinner on 25 November. The event aims to bring together key decision makers in corporate security and law enforcement from Germany, Europe and beyond.
