“Our keynote line up — featuring recognized experts in global affairs, technological innovation and industry transformation — delivers on our new brand promise to host a truly comprehensive global event,” said Richard E. Chase, CPP, PCI, PSP, 2018 president, ASIS International. “These speakers provide diverse perspectives that will set the tone for each day and bring to light both the risks and opportunities facing the profession and businesses at large.”

As commander of the Air Force Installation and Mission Support Centre, General Spacy is responsible for mission support capabilities to 77 Air Force installations, nine major commands and two direct reporting units with an annual budget of around $10 billion.

His Sept. 26 keynote, kicking off Military and Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, will examine the changing security landscape, both in the U.S. and around the world. Additionally, Spacy will provide details on the new AFWERX innovation and tech hub in Las Vegas and how the Air Force is looking to collaborate with the private sector to bring new security product ideas to market. Attendees will also learn about the evolving AFWERX/ASIS partnership and be the first to hear an announcement about the AFWERX Challenge.

Meanwhile, McFarland will close out the conference on Sept. 27 with her address, which will focus on geopolitics around the world. As the first deputy national security advisor in the Trump Administration, she will share an insider’s perspective on critical foreign policy and defence issues.
