Security Buyer returns from Dallas after ASIS 2017

The industry’s most comprehensive and informative guide to security news and products returned this week from Dallas, USA, after attending the ASIS 2017 conference.

The seminar, which took place from 25-28 September, is hosted annually and draws people from across the globe with interest and expertise in the security industry.

This year the event included the attendance of the U.S. Navy’s first female F-14 Tomcat fighter pilot, Carey Lohrenz, who spoke to a rapt audience about how important it is to stay calm and collected under pressure and the importance of working as a team. Author of ‘Fearless Leadership: High-Performance Lessons from the Flight Deck’, Carey Lohrenz also discussed the fundamentals of leadership, reducing errors, and overcoming obstacles, resonating with security professionals at all stages of their careers.

Former President George W. Bush also delivered a keynote speech, while Mark Cuban, Technology & Media Entrepreneur and Owner of the Dallas Mavericks shared his approach to the myriad challenges inherent in securing physical, data, and information assets.

ASIS International has become synonymous in recent years with exceptional training. Hosted for almost sixty years, the event showcased a host of products and services, in combination with cutting-edge technologies and solutions. A host of guest activities took take place, including a trip to Dallas Zoo, a presidential tour of the Dealey Plaza and the Grassy Knoll, the site of the 1963 assassination of President Kennedy, and the Messina HOF winery.

A leading event for security professionals worldwide, ASIS 2017 proved invaluable to the Security Buyer team, which gained substantial insight from the tens-of-thousands of individuals and businesses present.
