Alexandria, VA (March 21, 2018) - ASIS International, the leading association for security professionals worldwide, today opened registration for the industry’s flagship event, Global Security Exchange (GSX), taking place Sept. 23-27 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Formerly known as the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits, GSX will deliver the year’s most comprehensive security event, packed with peer networking, innovative technologies, and expert-led instruction that hones-in on both day-to-day challenges and the emerging risks and threats facing security professionals across the globe.

"This is not your typical security conference,” remarked Peter J. O’Neil, CEO, ASIS International. “GSX will elevate the traditional event experience with modernized, immersive education, exceptional networking opportunities, and an expo floor that will be transformed into a learning lab environment.”

The five-day event opens the door to the entire industry—cyber and operational security professionals from all verticals across the private and public sector, allied organizations and partners, and the industry’s leading service and solution providers. The conference program will feature globally recognized thought leaders and discussions on hot topics across nearly two dozen tracks. The learning formats range from deep dives to small-group programs, ensuring attendees at all career stages can gain valuable peer insights and information that can be immediately implemented.

Notes ASIS International 2018 President Richard E. Chase, CPP, PCI, PSP, “The challenges facing security professionals continue to increase exponentially. Attending GSX is the best way to stay ahead of the rapidly evolving security landscape.”

More than 500 exhibiting companies will be showcasing breakthrough innovations and exciting new products and services that are revolutionizing the security space.
