The flagship monthly publication of ASIS International, Security Management, will roll out a series of transformative changes starting in March—all designed to maximize the reader’s experience and preferences.
The across-the-board revamp of print and digital formats, as well as the Security Management website and Buyers Guide, is based on feedback from members, advances in publishing technology, and the ever-present mandate to deliver the most timely and critical news to the magazine’s 38,000 readers.
“We’ve enhanced what our readers think is best about Security Management and all of its related print and digital products,” said Michael Gips, ASIS vice president of Publishing. “And we’re presenting that content in ways that will make readers rush to open their magazine—whether in print format or on a device of their choice—to enjoy the aesthetic experience inside.”
The redesigned print edition, which will debut with the March issue, will feature a fresh, engaging new format and layout that will enhance the award-winning publication’s trademark depth and quality of editorial.
Starting later this month, a digital issue of Security Management for tablets will be published every month as a companion to the print magazine. The new digital edition, which operates on a robust and flexible platform, will offer an interactive experience with strategic use of video, slide shows, podcasts, and other highly rated engagement tools. The first digital edition will be released in late March and will be available for free only through the new app, which can be downloaded from the App Store and the Google Play Store. Future issues of the digital edition will only be available for free to ASIS members and Security Management subscribers.
A revamped Security Management Online is also coming your way later in the year. The website, which will create a more visual and dynamic look, will cover breaking security stories and issues. A new format and a powerful search function will allow members to find thousands of archived Security Management articles and supplemental materials by search term, vertical market, and subject matter.
The popular Security Management Buyers Guide has also been revamped. A new all-digital edition has been created, populated by exhibitors at ASIS 2013, and introduced onsite in Chicago to potential advertisers.
One of the most reader-friendly outcomes of the year-long top to bottom review and repositioning of all print and digital Security Management products is that content from all sources—whether print or digital—will be thematically and substantively integrated. For example, feeds from Security Management Daily will populate a specific area on the magazine’s website. Security Management Daily and Security Management Weekly will continue to be published on the same schedule, but will be fully integrated with the other news sources.
Security Management is received monthly as a benefit of ASIS membership. All members will continue to receive the print edition, and, starting in March, members will be able to access all of the new digital options described above at no additional cost. Subscriptions can be purchased by nonmembers for $48 (1-year). Visit the Store at asisonline.org for additional subscription options.
