Chapter Newsletter 01/2013 | Submission by 25 May

As part of our communications outreach, ASIS International (Singapore Chapter) is committed to producing two Chapter Newsletters each year.

The first Chapter newsletter for 2013 will be published in Jun 13. Other than updating members on past and upcoming events, we will also be publishing security-related articles of interest as part of education and knowledge sharing. The Singapore Chapter is seeking articles of interest from all members, which may relate to terrorism, physical security, executive protection, investigations, product counterfeiting, supply chain security, crisis management or business continuity management. The article may relate to current or emerging issues, best practices or challenges facing security professionals who are responsible for securing people, property and information in their organisations.

Other than earning CPE credits for CPP/PSP/PCI holders, this would be a valuable platform to share your knowledge with fellow Chapter members and other security professionals. Your article should be submitted in word doc containing no more than 1,000 words, which can be accompanied with a photo.

Submissions close on Sat 25 May 13. We encourage all members to contribute actively towards "A more connected and learned Chapter".

Regards,
Lim Choon Kwang, CPP
