Global Security Exchange (GSX) 2019
  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.

    ASIS will respond to this dynamic environment by providing the highest quality, cutting edge, relevant learning experiences over four days at GSX—Global Security Exchange, the most comprehensive security event in the world.

    Taking place 8-12 September 2019 in Chicago, IL, Global Security Exchange (GSX), produced in partnership with InfraGard, will offer best-in-class solutions to equip security professionals to anticipate, mitigate, manage, and prevent today's complex threats from an integrated enterprise perspective.

    We can't accomplish this without your expertise and insights.

    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 is comprised of professionals from vertical industries across both the public and private sectors, as well as military and law enforcement professionals and others responsible for security.

    GSX 2019 is known for its high-quality and comprehensive education program. Session abstracts must offer strong and relevant 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.

    Format matters—think beyond the traditional lecture format to deliver a learning experience that will have lasting impact.

    Back and better than ever:
    X-Learning: X marks the collision of security and emerging technology—beginning with experiential sessions on the show floor that will spill over into the classroom environment. X bridges the capabilities of today with the challenges of tomorrow. X provides actionable insights for security professionals so that they can proactively shape the future.

    Sessions delivered on the Xperience stage will provide organized, tactical resources for accelerating benchmarking, knowledge-sharing and innovation.
    Featured sessions on the Xchange stage will offer curated conversations about trends and solutions, and emerging technology risks.

    X-Learning is experiential—whether the topic is AI, Drones and Robotics, AR/VR or mobile and wearables. The goal? To empower security professionals with cutting edge solutions.

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