ASIS International, the world's largest membership organization for security management professionals, announced its lineup of new Game Changer sessions for Global Security Exchange (GSX) 2019, to be held September 8-12 at Chicago’s McCormick Place, which offer valuable insights and information on technologies that are rapidly changing today’s paradigm for security professionals.

“The ever-changing landscape for security professionals around the globe remains complex,” said Christina Duffey, CPP, President, ASIS International. “As part of an on-going effort to continually enhance the value GSX provides for all attendees, our new Game Changers education track will provide multiple perspectives from thought leaders to not only help our audience stay informed about new and disruptive technologies, but also maintain a competitive edge and elevate expertise across their organizations.”

The GSX 2019 Game Changer lineup consists of five thought-provoking sessions:
