ASIS and Johnson Controls confirm long-term partnership for ASIS Europe 2018 and beyond

by Brian Sims

ASIS International and Johnson Controls have once more confirmed their long-term partnership covering the annual ASIS Europe events, with an intention to maintain this arrangement until 2020. This year’s edition of ASIS Europe – for which Risk UK is an Official Media Partner – will take place on 18-20 April in Rotterdam, The Netherlands.

Tyco, a brand of Johnson Controls, has supported the event as the top sponsor every year since 2007.

“Our participation at ASIS Europe allows us to interact with key decision-makers and thought leaders in the region,” explained John Flanderhijn, Johnson Controls’ director of strategy for marketing and business development in the Benelux region. “The event’s re-design last year, with its emphasis on securing organisations in the era of the Internet of Things, makes it an ideal strategic fit with Johnson Controls’ focus on smarter and safer buildings, campuses and cities.”

ASIS Europe is designed by security practitioners for security professionals. The ‘From Risk to Resilience’ event format – with its mix of conference content, training, technology and solutions, an exhibition, a dedicated careers centre and exclusive networking – supports established and aspiring security leaders requiring a broad understanding of both physical and cyber threats.

ASIS’ CEO Peter O’Neil observed: “I see this long-term partnership as an important endorsement of ASIS’ decision to embrace Enterprise Security Risk Management as a strategic priority such that we can better serve security professionals dealing with increasingly complex and interconnected risks. The support of industry partners like Johnson Controls is key when it comes to developing our programmes and education that advance the profession all year long, all over the world.”

This year’s conference in Rotterdam is themed ‘Blurred Boundaries: Clear Risks’ and will include tackling the impacts of Big Data and Artificial Intelligence.

Johnson Controls will present on ‘Smart Buildings: Fundamentals for Security Professionals’ as part of the Technology and Solutions track at conference.
