Cyber Security Summit Coming to Global Security Exchange
ASIS International, the world's largest association of security management professionals, recently announced that Cyber Security Summit will co-locate with Global Security Exchange (GSX), expanding the depth of cyber education in the blockbuster GSX conference program. In the first year of its rebrand following a 63-year history as the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits, GSX—the security industry's flagship event—is expected to attract more than 20,000 operational and cyber security professionals and 550 exhibitors to the Las Vegas Convention Center, Sept. 23-27.
The Cyber Security Summit, taking place Sept. 26-27, brings together top government, industry, and academia thought leaders to exchange ideas and engage in a dialogue to improve the state of cybersecurity. The event provides an annual review of what has happened over the past year, an update on current cyber trends, and most importantly a preview of what organizations need to prepare for in the future.
"When it was founded in 2011, the Cyber Security Summit was among the first national events to highlight the challenges posed by cyber threats," said Richard E. Chase, CPP, PCI, PSP, 2018 President, ASIS International. "The inclusion of this event is a significant value-add to an already record-breaking conference program. Our attendees gain access to insights from Fortune 500 CISOs and high-level government leaders that aren't just talking about cybersecurity—they are doing it."
The Cyber Security Summit joins event partners InfraGard and ISSA, as well as dozens of supporting organizations representing a range of industry verticals, for the world's most comprehensive security event. Revamped in 2017, the GSX "Supporting Organizations" program has swelled in size and reflects ASIS' commitment to unite the full spectrum of security.
