ASIS makes seminar rebranding official, starting with Vegas event
ASIS International officially launched the new name for its annual seminar: Global Security Exchange (GSX).
Previously known as the ASIS International 64th Annual Seminar and the Exhibits, the new name, according to a statement issued by ASIS, “reflects the society’s commitment to unite the full spectrum of security — 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 — for the most comprehensive security event in the world.”
GSX is scheduled to take place in Las Vegas, Nev., Sept. 23-27. Partner organizations will include InfraGard and Information Systems Security Association (ISSA).
ASIS International president Richard E. Chase said in a statement, “as the global voice for the security profession, ASIS is focused on year-round success in the form of professional development, certification, fostering peer-to-peer communities, and the development of standards, white papers, and best practices. Convening the industry at GSX is a critical component of our mission to advance security worldwide.”
ASIS first announced its intent to change the name of its flagship U.S. conference late last year. Since then, it has rebranded to GSX with a new website. Registration for the event will open next month.
