Global Security Exchange (GSX) 2018 (formerly the Annual Seminar and Exhibits)

  1. Introduction

    In today's global threat landscape, it is critical for organizations to address security at the enterprise level, looking at every type of risk — physical, cyber, operational, and human — affecting an organization. From insider threat to cybercrime, terrorist acts to social unrest, infrastructure protection to data breaches — the challenges are complex and potentially disastrous.

    Taking place September 23-27, 2018 in Las Vegas, NV, the Global Security Exchange (GSX) 2018 (formerly the Annual Seminar and Exhibits), produced in partnership with the Information Systems Security Association (ISSA) and InfraGard will offer best-in-class analyses and solutions to equip security professionals to anticipate, mitigate, manage, and prevent today's complex threats from an integrated enterprise perspective.

    Calling all subject matter experts: This is your opportunity to share your experience and expertise with our global audience of security management practitioners looking for the latest information, cutting-edge strategies, and best practices that will help them succeed in their jobs and demonstrate ROI to their organizations. This audience comprises professionals from all vertical industries across both the public and private sectors, as well as military and law enforcement professionals and others responsible for security.

    The ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits is known for its high-quality and comprehensive education program. Session abstracts must offer strong content and actionable takeaways to ensure that the targeted audience(s) benefit. All professional security-related topics are welcome — intermediate to advanced-level sessions are highly desirable and case studies are strongly encouraged.

    If you possess knowledge that will challenge and inspire the ASIS audience, we encourage you to submit your abstract(s) today!

    Commercially focused/vendor promotional proposals will not be considered
