Preparing security professionals for an ever-changing threat landscape
Alexandria, VA (22 April 2022)—ASIS International, the world’s largest association for security management professionals, has opened registration for Global Security Exchange (GSX) 2022, a hybrid event taking place 12-14 September that will offer a digital experience on the GSX online platform as well as an in-person event at the Georgia World Congress Center (GWCC) in Atlanta, GA.
“Globally and locally, a rapidly evolving threat landscape is creating gaps in our defenses and cracks in practices and protocols we once thought were written in stone,” said Malcolm Smith, CPP, 2022 President, ASIS International. “GSX is the industry’s most trusted event—and exactly where you and your team need to be to build resilience in the face of fast-moving change. Managing risk in today’s environment means security professionals need to navigate a level complexity the likes of which we have not seen before. Our community has never seen a time where in-person collaboration was more important than it is right now, and nobody does community better than ASIS.”
Only GSX brings the entire world of security together in one place to stay ahead of the biggest trends and challenges—in access control, asset protection, surveillance, remote workforces, workplace violence, cybersecurity, business continuity, crisis management, and more—through cross-industry networking and a full slate of specialized education with the potential to earn up to 22 CPEs. GSX registration costs are discounted for ASIS International members.
The GSX 2022 All-Access Pass unlocks more than 175 live sessions, including inspiring education sessions, expert-led tracks, exhibitor presentations, timely General Sessions, and digital content. For those not able to attend GSX in person, livestreaming of educational sessions and re-broadcasts of certain sessions will occur throughout the event. The full session lineup will be revealed by May.
If you plan to attend GSX in person, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with more than 300 industry-leading innovative companies to discuss today’s most critical issues and get an advance look at the latest innovations addressing the security profession’s greatest challenges.
GSX also serves as the setting to celebrate the annual ASIS Awards of Excellence recognizing the important work and accomplishments of security management professionals worldwide -- honoring them not only for their accomplishments but also to share their efforts and to recognize them for setting the standard for the security profession.
Attendees’ health and wellbeing is also part of our commitment to safety. ASIS will continue to monitor the state of the global pandemic and implement the appropriate health and safety protocols accordingly. You can review current health and safety measures for the city of Atlanta.
The GWCC was the first convention center in the U.S. to achieve GBAC STAR accreditation for cleaning, disinfection, and infectious disease prevention. It is the industry’s only outbreak prevention, response, and recovery accreditation. GBAC STAR enables facilities to create and maintain an organized, effective approach to work practices, protocols, procedures, and systems to control risks associated with infectious agents, such as the virus responsible for COVID-19. ASIS is also pleased to announce its partnership with Epistemix and Safe Expo, the preeminent service providers for pre-event health planning. For those planning to attend GSX 2022 in person, please familiarize yourself with the event’s health and safety protocols.
