Sandi will be talking about the importance of achieving certifications in the security industry.
Here is the description of her presentation:
ASIS security certifications set the standard for professional excellence. Recognized worldwide, the CPP, PCI, and PSP credentials provide objective proof of professional knowledge and experience. Get an update of the most recent developments regarding the (concept) ESMP (Emerging Security Management Professional) certification of ASIS. Learn from experienced trainings and HQ staff why ASIS certifications are the top choice for security professionals, how you can distinguish yourself in the labour market and how the IFPO certification programs, such as CPO, can be a great stepping stone towards ASIS security certification.
Some information about ASIS 2018:
BLURRED BOUNDARIES – CLEAR RISKS
Securing today’s connected enterprise is a race across many different terrains where we are often unsure or unaware of what lies ahead and who or where our opponents really are.
As boundaries continue to erode between the physical and cyber worlds, between high and low-tech risks, between the human workforce and artificial intelligence, and as the valuation of digital compared to physical assets undergoes radical shifts, ASIS Europe 2018 tackles the most challenging issues.
Cyber-physical threats in hyper-complex, connected environments are the core themes of the event.
ASIS, as a global community of security practitioners tasked with the protection of assets – people, property, and information – is uniquely positioned to deal with enterprise-wide risks.
If you are responsible for keeping organisations secure, sustainable and resilient, join us in Rotterdam on 18-20 April 2018.
