The ability to network with other security professionals around the world will be a lot easier for ASIS members beginning the week of May 5. An enhanced ASIS online membership directory, powered by a totally new search engine, will offer a comprehensive listing of the more than 36,000 ASIS members. ASIS is the preeminent organization for security management professionals.
The directory, with upgrades designed to improve its usefulness and usability, will be available at www.asisonline.org
Access is for members only.
Easier and more accurate searches are possible.
The basic search criterion is by name.
Users can also access additional search criteria, including company name, location (city, state, country) and ASIS information (certifications, chapter affiliation, leadership roles).
A member’s directory listing would show name, job title and company name, address, phone and fax numbers, email addresses (with mailto: links), and ASIS information, including indications of lifetime and/or Quarter Century Club membership.
Cross-browsing capabilities will allow users to navigate through a directory listing. A user may search the name of a member, view the detail record, then link to a search on the member’s company, see those results, view a few detail records, notice that one of the members is on the Healthcare Security Council, for instance, and link to a search for all the members on that council.
The new online directory will always be up to date. Updates and revisions to existing information will be added to the membership directory within two business days, as will new member information. Members will be able to access up to 40 names in a 24-hour period.
Previously published annually in the May/June issue of Dynamics, the new directory will be available exclusively online.
