ASIS 2016 General Sessions Focus on Navigating Change in the Workplace and Finding Common Ground


Alexandria, Va. 2016-04-13

The ​General Sessions presented on the final day of the ASIS International 62nd Annual Seminar and Exhibits (ASIS 2016) will provide security professionals with actionable insights into managing change in the workplace and a front seat to an energized debate on some of today’s top political issues. ASIS 2016 opens a comprehensive four-day education and networking event on Sept. 12 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. The Show+ Pass provides free entry into these and other General Sessions.  

“Our primary goal is to provide security management professionals the information, strategies, and tools to successfully navigate and manage risk,” said ASIS President David C. Davis CPP. “While practitioners’ roles and responsibilities vary widely, there are a core set of skills, including change management and consensus building, that are universally in demand. These closing sessions offer tangible knowledge that professionals can readily apply in their daily work.”

The 62nd Annual Seminar and Exhibits will take place September 12-15 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. For the sixth consecutive year, (ISC)2, the largest not-for-profit membership body of certified information security professionals worldwide, will colocate their Security Congress with the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits. Registrants of either ASIS 2016 or (ISC)2 Security Congress may gain access to each event’s education sessions and the exhibit hall. Both organizations also will offer review courses for their respective certifications, as well as separate, members-only activities.
