ASIS International, the world’s largest association for security management professionals, unveiled a refreshed, mobile-centric website and online community focused on improved and personalized content, user-centric search and commerce, and improved information sharing and collaboration among security professionals worldwide.
The website, www.asisonline.org, features a dramatically enhanced user experience including powerful search capabilities, an extensively researched taxonomy that drives content organization, and a more intuitive navigation structure. An exciting new feature is the launch of ASIS Connects, the Society’s new online community. Designed exclusively for security professionals, it provides a robust, user-friendly platform for peer-to-peer problem solving and collaboration.
“These technology upgrades are just the start of a multi-year effort that will transform how the Society engages with members and the security profession as a whole,” said Peter J. O’Neil, CEO, ASIS International. “By creating a search-centric site and secure community platform, ASIS will be able to help security professionals at their ‘moment of need’ by providing relevant, timely resources in a device agnostic interface.”
Community features include a resource library stocked with case studies, best practices, book excerpts, Security Management articles, and education recording; an easy-to-use discussion forum for security professionals to engage with and learn from each other; and a robust online directory to allow for thoughtful relationship building.
“ASIS members work each day to create safe workplaces and communities worldwide,” said Richard E. Chase, CPP, PCI, PSP, 2018 President, ASIS International. “This shared commitment and desire to see each other succeed is what makes our profession so unique. And, ASIS Connects is designed to help facilitate this exchange of ideas and information. Members can leverage the diversity of experience and expertise from their global peer network to get fresh perspectives on daily challenges and expert insight on new and emerging threats.”
In the months ahead, ASIS Connects will feature topic-based discussion forums and chapter and event management tools, making it easier for security professionals to engage with the Society on the local, national, and global levels.
