ASIS Hosts Transitioning from Public Sector to Security Profession in New York City March 13

Senior Security Leaders Will Advise Law Enforcement, Military on Successful Transition

Alexandria, Va. 2014-03-07

​The ASIS New York City Chapter and the ASIS Law Enforcement Liaison Council announced a special networking event designed to help individuals explore the possibilities and navigate the process of transitioning from public sector positions into the security profession.

“Transitioning from the Public to Private Sector” will be held Thursday, March 13, from 5:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. at the historic New York Athletic Club, near Central Park. A tour of the Club’s Hall of Fame will be provided along with a light buffet and cocktails.  Registrations, at a fee of $50, are limited to those attending the ASIS 24th New York City Security Conference & Expo, March 13–14, at the Jacob K. Javits Center.

Several senior security leaders will be on hand for the evening of networking and relationship building developed specifically for current or former law enforcement or military professionals. Individuals who are already in security and simply wish to learn about effective transitions will also benefit from this event.

“We hand-picked speakers for this session so that the information shared would be practical and timely,” said George Anderson, Chair of the ASIS New York City Chapter and Vice President—Operations, AlliedBarton Security Services.

The evening will feature a brief program in which attendees will hear from senior security directors, vice presidents, and managers who were selected for their willingness to share their personal experiences in making the transition or observations of others who have made such a transition.

“This is an invaluable opportunity to learn best practices in making a successful transition, exchange business cards, and even identify mentors,” said program sponsor Brian J. Allen, Esq., CPP, GVP, Chief Security Officer, Time Warner Cable.

The event is sponsored by Time Warner Cable, the ASIS New York City Chapter, the Wounded Warriors Project, and Tutela.  Attendees are encouraged to “sponsor” attendance by a Wounded Warrior for an additional $50.

Space is limited and registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Go online to register.
