ASIS International, the preeminent society for security management professionals, and the Security Executive Council, an international membership organization for public and private sector security executives, have formed a partnership to provide leadership tools and solutions to benefit members of both organizations and the security industry. ASIS will offer SEC’s innovative leadership materials—including books, presentations and research reports—in the ASIS bookstore.
“This is a significant initiative for the industry,” says Timothy L. Williams, CPP, president of ASIS International. “It enables members of the world’s leading security organization to gain access to the cutting-edge materials developed by and for security executives.”
“The tools and solutions created by the Security Executive Council are the result of nearly three years of research and production development,” says Bob Hayes, SEC’s managing director. “Each book or presentation is designed and developed to the exact specifications of member security executives to address current leadership challenges. These issues and strategies have proven to be universal for corporate and IT security professionals and should be invaluable for ASIS members.”
The ASIS Bookstore Catalog 2008-09 is featuring nine publications from the more than 100 original SEC products, based on 17 member-identified strategic initiatives, including “Security Careers: Defining Jobs, Compensation, Qualifications” and “Measures & Metrics: A Workbook for Demonstrating How Security Adds Value to Business.” Both are offered in several formats, including PDF, CD and print. Another offering, “Companion to Measures and Metrics in Corporate Security, Series 1 and 2,” is available in PowerPoint format.
