Security practitioners from across the industry will find some exciting new offerings at the ASIS International 57th Annual Seminar and Exhibits (ASIS 2011) in Orlando, Florida, Sept. 19-22. A new partnership with (ISC)2 (“ISC-squared”) broadens the educational program and opens valuable new networking opportunities. In total, this year’s Seminar will offer attendees more than 180 educational sessions across 22 tracks.

(ISC)2 (“ISC-squared”), the largest non-for-profit membership body of certified information security professionals and administrators of the CISSP, will collocate its first global conference with the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits at the Orange County Convention Center from Sept. 19-21.  The annual event will bring together information security thought leaders for discussions on a wide range of information security issues.  

“The roles of the information security and traditional security professionals within the global business marketplace are rapidly evolving, converging,” stated ASIS President Raymond T. O’Hara, CPP. “By co-locating our annual events, our combined memberships of more than 100,000 professionals gain access to core knowledge and best practices across the full spectrum of information and traditional security. The opportunity to connect with one’s security counterpart and to build a solid practitioner network is one of the most valuable benefits to be derived from this relationship.”

The (ISC)2 Security Congress program offers educational tracks that include Cloud Security, Governance Regulation and Compliance, Application Security, Mobile Security and Social Media, and the Swiss Army Knife – Tools, Tips and Techniques for the Well-Rounded Infosecurity Professional. 

ASIS certification reviews will be offered Sept. 16-17 for the Certified Protection Professional (CPP), Professional Certified Investigator (PCI), and Physical Security Professional (PSP) examinations. On Sept. 17-18, a series of (ISC)2 credential clinics are scheduled (CISSP®, CSSLP®, CAP®, and SSCP®), as well as an official two-day review seminar for both CSSLP and CISSP.

General education sessions, networking events, and the exhibit floor are open to registered attendees for either event. Detailed information on the full ASIS 2011 education program can be found at
