Interesting information from ASIS. The ASIS Executive Protection Council has created Executive Protection Standards and Guidelines, which has been submitted to ASIS for review. Also, they will launch at least two Executive Protection Newsletters in 2018. If you are an ASIS member you can log in to the forums to read the announcement from Bob Oatman.
Years back a group of practitioners under the umbrella of the American Board for Certification in Homeland Security (ABCHS) created Executive Protection Standards for a Certification program that would be offered by the ABCHS. The ABCHS EP Board consisted of practitioners from all the disciplines; it took about three years to get it together. Unfortunately, ABCHS imploded. It will be interesting to see how the ASIS EP Standards progresses.
Also ASIS International has changed the name of its annual security conference from the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits to the Global Security Exchange (GSX).
The newly branded GSX will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, from September 23-27, 2018.
