Pre-conference workshops 

On the Saturday and Sunday preceding GSX, ASIS will be hosting two workshops that are available to any attendees. 

The Facility Security Design workshop takes place over two days (9 – 10 September) and focuses on cost-effective facility security designs.

The course is designed for mid to advanced-level security professionals and is particularly applicable to those involved in the design, specification, implementation, operation and/or maintenance of security systems.

Participants can earn up to 13.5 continuing professional education (CPE) credits for participation in the pre-conference program and an additional 3.5 CPE credits upon completion of the online Essentials of Facility Security Design Certificate. 

The Successfully Implementing an ESRM Approach into Your Organization workshop is an intensive one-day program on Sunday 10 September, designed to help security practitioners begin to effectively implement an Enterprise Security Risk Management (ESRM) approach.

This course is designed for security practitioners who already have some understanding of ESRM and will use the fundamental ESRM concepts as a foundation only and build in complexity and strategy as the day progresses.

Participants can earn up to 6.5 CPE credits for participation in the pre-conference workshop and an additional 3.5 CPE credits upon completion of the online ESRM Certificate.

Certification review programs 

The weekend before the conference, ASIS will also host two-day in-person review sessions for the CPP, PCI and PSP.

Each review will take place from 8am – 4:30pm CT on Saturday and 8am – 4pm CT on Sunday and participants will receive up to 13.5 CPEs upon completion.

The review courses are designed to provide a high-level overview of the relevant certification knowledge domains in an environment that facilitates professional knowledge assessments, discussions with colleagues and guidance from board-certified instructors who have proven themselves in the field. 

Secure Horizons: an immersive experience for senior security executives 

Secure Horizons is a two-day event, exclusive to CSO Center members, that will take place the weekend prior to GSX.

Intentionally designed through a senior security executive lens, the two-day experience will encourage insights, skills and networking to elevate the status of security professionals in the C-suite and beyond.

Lida Citroën, CEO of LIDA360, LLC, will be the program’s keynote speaker and facilitator. Attendees will also earn 11.5 CPEs. 

ASIS Volunteers Day 

The new ASIS Volunteers Day is a day all about the wonderful volunteers that make ASIS the vibrant community it is.

The in-person event will allow ASIS members from across the world to meet and connect with each other, as well as engage with the community and get excited for the coming conference and year!

The event will be on Sunday 10 September from 12pm until 4:30pm CT, when it will roll into the ASIS Awards of Excellence. 

ASIS Awards of Excellence and the OSPAs 

Starting at 5pm CT on Sunday 10 September, ASIS will host the joint ASIS Awards of Excellence and the Outstanding Security Performance Awards (OSPAs).
