ASIS International Delivers 8th European Security Conference

The ASIS International 8th European Security Conference took place on 26-29 April at Montreux Music & Convention Centre in Montreux, Switzerland.

312 security professionals, corporate executives, consultants, and officials from 44 different countries attended 30 high-level educational sessions on topics ranging from supply chain security to convergence of physical security and IT. Although due to the economic crisis the number of delegates was somewhat lower than in previous years, this did not affect the quality networking and business opportunities for delegates and exhibitors alike.

Fairmont

The opening keynote speaker was Dr. Sally Leivesley, managing director of NewRisk Limited, an organisation which advises governments and companies on catastrophic risk. Dr. Leivesley outlined top-five of risks facing security practitioners today: the global recession, global terror and proxy wars, energy availability, public confidence, and pandemics. Naturally, with the swine flu outbreak grabbing headlines, much of her time was dedicated to that last topic.

On the second day, Mr. Jakob Scharf, Head of the Danish Security and Intelligence Service (PET), discussed the increased terrorist threat in his country following the publication in 2005 of cartoons depicting the prophet Mohammed.
The closing keynote speaker was Roland Billeter, President of ADT Continental Europe. According to Mr. Billiter; 18 of the 27 EU members appear in the world's top 30 per capita crime rankings

The conference included sessions specifically designed to cover standards development and implementation as well as an event dedicated to the upper echelon of the security profession - the CSO.

Delegates also attended networking events such as the SRVP Welcome Reception at the Fairmont Palace Le Montreux, as well as the President’s Reception, which took place at the historic Chateau de Chillon.

ASIS also announced the winner of the ASIS International 2009 European Award for Distinguished Contributions to Societal Security which went to Ambassador Kai Eide for his efforts to bring peace and stability to the Western Balkans.

CPEs Awarded to ASIS Certificants at IFSEC

Attending IFSEC 2009? If so and you are a CPP, PCI, or PSP—you can now earn CPE credits toward your recertification requirements by attending IFSEC educational programs or show floor. IFSEC conference registration records will be used to confirm CPE requests. ASIS board certificants will be required to follow the current guidelines for submission of CPE credits posted online in the recertification area of www.asisonline.org. These submissions will be verified against IFSEC conference registrations.

Instituted by ASIS in January 2008, the CPE system is based on a standard of measure used worldwide to calculate continuing professional development. One credit equals one instructional hour (at least 50 minutes of instruction). All ASIS board certificants are required to submit CPEs by December 31st of the third year of their term. The numbers of CPE credits vary by certification. CPPs are required to earn 60 CPEs every three years, while the requirements for both PCI and PSP are 45.

To learn more about CPE requirements for recertification, or to find out how many credits you currently have on record, please visit www.asisonline.org/certification/recertification

ASIS will be exhibiting at IFSEC. Visit us in Hall 4, Stand A60

ASIS Fire & Life Safety Council Needs Your Input

The ASIS Fire & Life Safety Council needs your input and comments on current fire safety issues and challenges facing the international community. We are constructing an article for Security Management Magazine and would like to reflect the global picture of problems the fire industry is facing and success stories in meeting these challenges.

If you would like to submit comments or ideas please feel free to do so. You will receive credit for any comments used, unless you request to be anonymous.

Information needed:

• Country you are responding for.

• How are the fire safety codes/guidelines/requirements regulated by your company, the city, the country’s government?

• Does the country have a way of recognizing or promoting fire safety?

• What are the most critical issues facing fire safety from your prospective?

• Is there a program to honor heroic deeds of firefighters?

• How are firefighters trained? How long is the training?

These are just some of the questions you can comment on but there are no parameters on what you can write about. We would prefer current issues rather than historical comments.

Those responding please include your e-mail address so we can contact you with questions we might have. Your e-mail address will be kept confidential.
