ASIS International, global association of security management professionals, announced that Cyber Security Summit will co-locate with Global Security Exchange (GSX), expanding the depth of cyber education in the blockbuster GSX conference program. In the first year of its rebrand following a 63-year history as the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits, GSX—the security industry’s flagship event—is expected to attract more than 20,000 operational and cyber security professionals and 550 exhibitors to the Las Vegas Convention Center, Sept. 23-27. Cyber Security Summit The Cyber Security Summit, taking place Sept. 26-27, brings together top government, industry, and academia thought leaders to exchange ideas and engage in a dialogue to improve the state of cybersecurity. The event provides an annual review of what has happened over the past year, an update on current cyber trends, and most importantly a preview of what organisations need to prepare for in the future. “When it was founded in 2011, the Cyber Security Summit was among the first national events to highlight the challenges posed by cyber threats,” said Richard E. Chase, CPP, PCI, PSP, 2018 President, ASIS International. “The inclusion of this event is a significant value-add to an already record-breaking conference program. Our attendees gain access to insights from Fortune 500 CISOs and high-level government leaders that aren’t just talking about cybersecurity—they are doing it.” Cybersecurity trends The Cyber Security Summit joins event partners InfraGard and ISSA, as well as dozens of supporting organisations representing a range of industry verticals, for the world’s most comprehensive security event. Revamped in 2017, the GSX “Supporting Organisations” program has swelled in size and reflects ASIS’ commitment to unite the full spectrum of security.

O'Neil, CAE, chief executive officer, ASIS International. “The presentations will lay the groundwork for a forward-looking enterprise security risk management approach to risk, setting up security to be a critical business partner.” At GSX, Zakaria will open the conference with an examination of important forces, developments, and risks affecting the global community Addressing cyber security threats Zakaria, host of CNN’s Peabody Award-winning ‘Fareed Zakaria GPS’, is former editor-at-large of TIME magazine, a three-time bestselling author, and one of Foreign Policy magazine’s Top 100 Global Thinkers.

His remarks will address cyberthreats—espionage, ransomware, spear phishing—which know no boundaries. The once-local crime syndicates that have now metastasized over whole regions and continents. Global expansion and outsourcing, which means managing international teams and varying cultures. And more. With an emphasis on international intelligence and security, Zakaria will explore what it means to live in a truly global era. These keynotes reflect our commitment to bring diverse, forward-thinking speakers to our event to address vital issues impacting businesses and communities worldwide" Impact of rapid digital transformation on security management Klososky returns as the GSX Tuesday keynote following his popular 2017 presentation, ‘The Technology Integration of Man’. Building on his continued involvement with chief security officers and ASIS stakeholders in the past year, Klososky will address the impact of today’s rapid digital transformation on security management and leadership. He will build a compelling case for managing and using technology—and knowing when not to use it—to gain a competitive advantage and lead successfully into the future. “We are excited for these well-respected thought leaders to share their vital insights and set the stage for the conference education that follows,” said Richard E.
