About Us

ASIS International is the preeminent organization for security professionals, with more than 38,000 members worldwide, each of whom has a role in the protection of assets - people, property, and/or information. Our members represent virtually every industry in the public and private sectors, and organizations of all sizes. From entry-level managers to CSOs to CEOs, from security veterans to consultants and those transitioning from law enforcement or the military, the ASIS community is global and diverse. Founded in 1955, ASIS is dedicated to increasing the effectiveness and productivity of security professionals by developing educational programs and materials that address broad security interests, such as the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits, as well as specific security topics. ASIS also advocates the role and value of the security management profession to business, the media, government entities, and the public. No other organization possesses the vast array of knowledge, expertise, and experience.

The Central New Jersey Chapter of ASIS International has a current membership of over 360. Our membership represents the entire spectrum of security professionals with security contractors and practitioners from the Central New Jersey area. It is a forum that brings together security professionals to further their common goals and to share experiences and best practices. Corporate security professionals, including many Fortune 500 companies and the providers of security services, as well as Federal, State and local law enforcement, are involved in the Chapter.

The Chapter organizes and provides a number of services and events, which include:

  • Monthly luncheon meetings at which a variety of speakers are invited covering a wide range of security-related topics.

  • Networking opportunities where security professionals in both private and public sectors can connect, share information and develop business relationships. This includes the recently added interest groups, Young Professionals and Women in Security.

  • An annual golf outing at a local country club and special holiday gathering at year’s end.

  • Seminars to educate and train members in matters appropriate to today’s security needs, including a CPP Study Group and periodic transition training programs
