GSX breaks new ground for security industry

Alexandria, Va

GSX+ kicked off earlier this week and is delivering a fully virtual experience that includes CPE-eligible education sessions, a robust Marketplace (virtual exhibit hall), and lively peer-to-peer networking. The event closes today and featured an extensive programme with 140+ education sessions and daily keynote presentations.

The new virtual experience, branded GSX+, builds on the annual Global Security Exchange (GSX) event and organisers aimed for this to be the largest virtual gathering of global security professionals.  The show kicked off on the 21st September with a General Session presentation by Juan Manuel Santos, two-term President of Columbia and recipient of the 2016 Nobel Peace Prize.

“GSX+ is truly a virtual experience unlike anything the security industry has experienced before,” says Godfried Hendriks, CPP, 2020 President, ASIS International Global Board of Directors. “The global pandemic challenged us, so we responded by seizing the opportunity to provide new value. For example, every educational session will be recorded and made available for attendees on-demand 24/7. Unlike previous in-person events, this change means that every attendee, no matter their travel restrictions or time zone, will be able to see and learn from every offered session. We are excited about every element of this new virtual event, and we hope that attendees will also seize this opportunity to experience all the possibilities. Only ASIS has the experience, global reach, and expertise of its members to convene a virtual event of this magnitude and quality.”

Keynote presentations included topical issues such as, "Embracing the Future: Strategies for Building Resilience and Innovation", "Leading in Turbulent Times", and "The Future of Cybersecurity".

The GSX+ educational lineup included 140+ scheduled and on-demand sessions across five tracks: National Security, Physical and Operational Security, Risk Management, Digital Transformation/ Information Security, and Leadership and Managing within Organizations. All-Access attendees can earn up to 25 CPEs and will be able to access education sessions through 31 December.

GSX+ also offered numerous opportunities for peer networking, including virtual receptions, awards celebrations, and even the ASIS Break Room.
