Registration now open for ASIS International’s Global Security Exchange 2018

ASIS International has opened registrations for the flagship Global Security Exchange (GSX) event taking place from 23-27 September at the Las Vegas Convention Centre in Nevada. Formerly known as the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits, GSX will “deliver the year’s most comprehensive security event” packed with peer networking, innovative technologies and expert-led instruction that focuses on both day-to-day challenges and the emerging risks and threats facing security professionals across the globe.

“This is not your typical security conference,” remarked Peter O’Neil, CEO of ASIS International. “GSX will elevate the traditional event experience with modernised and immersive education, exceptional networking opportunities and an expo floor that will be transformed into a learning lab environment.”

The five-day event opens the door to the entire industry: cyber and operational security professionals from all verticals across the private and public sectors, allied organisations and partners and many of the industry’s leading service and solution providers will all be attending.

The conference programme will feature globally-recognised thought leaders and discussions on hot topics across nearly two dozen separate tracks. The learning formats range from ‘deep dives’ to small group programmes, ensuring attendees at all career stages can gain valuable peer insights and information that can be immediately implemented.

ASIS International’s 2018 president Richard Chase CPP PCI PSP noted: “The challenges facing security professionals continue to increase exponentially. Attending GSX is the very best way to stay ahead of today’s rapidly evolving security landscape.”

More than 500 exhibiting companies will be showcasing breakthrough innovations and exciting new products and services that are revolutionising the security space.

Early bird savings are available until 30 June. ASIS members enjoy free access to the expo floor and receive significant savings on their conference registration.

*GSX is produced in partnership with InfraGard and the Information Systems Security Association International. For more information visit
