1 March 2009
Security Today

The 8th ASIS International European Security Conference will take place on 26-29 April 2009 at the Montreux Music and Congress Centre in Montreux, Switzerland. The theme of the conference will be "Taking security management to the next level" and will feature over 30 high level educational sessions for and by international security experts. Around 500 senior security professionals, corporate executives, consultants, architects and law enforcement officials are expected to participate.

The 8th ASIS International European Security Conference will cover the entire spectrum of security topics ranging from supply chain security, convergence of physical and IT security, and piracy to terrorism, executive protection, travel security, and more. It will be a unique opportunity to connect with both public and private sector leaders from around European and the globe and to discover how they are confronting today's security challenges.

Mr. Jakob Scharf, head of the Danish Security and Intelligence Service (PET), will discuss the increased terrorist threat in his country following the publication in 2006 of cartoons depicting the prophet Mohammed. In its capacity as the national security and intelligence service of Denmark, PET must prevent, investigate, and counter operations and activities that pose or may pose a threat to the preservation of Denmark as a free, democratic, safe country. An essential aspect of the work of PET is to maintain contact and cooperation with society and the business community.

This year's conference has been made possible through the sponsorship of ADT, Securitas, Siemens, Metodo3 and FLIR and is supported by TAPA EMEA, The Security Institute, ISSA UK, ISACA, The Cross Border Research Association and the SASIG.

Delegates will also attend networking events such as the SRVP Welcome Reception at the Fairmont Le Montreux Palace and the President's Reception at the historic Chateau de Chillon.

The CSO Roundtable of ASIS International, the members-only forum of senior security executives from the world's largest organisations, will hold a half-day of CSO-only sessions on Sunday 26 April and a luncheon on Tuesday 28 April which will include a discussion on security metrics.

New this year is the 5-day, 40-hour ASIS International ISO 28000 Lead Auditor Certification Course designed for professionals involved with the development of security management systems and managers responsible for improvement outcomes. The program, which meets the requirements for ISO 28000:2007 "Specification for security management systems for the supply chain," provides a thorough understanding of the IS0 28000 series of standards.
