“Tens of thousands of operational and cyber security practitioners attend our Annual Seminar and Exhibits annually from around the globe,” said ASIS President Richard E. Widup, Jr., CPP. “It is the premier education and networking event for those charged with the protection of life, property, and information in our world today.”
ASIS, the leading organization for security management professionals, draws more than 20,000 security professionals from around the globe each year to its Annual Seminar and Exhibits and presents more than 200 educational sessions. The exhibition area typically features more than 225,000 net square feet of the latest security technology and innovations in traditional and logical security, providing a showcase for more than 700 companies demonstrating cutting-edge solutions.
