Welcome to ASIS Chicago!

The ASIS Chicago Chapter, a local subset of the international organization, is among the top ten largest chapters in the organization, with over 700 members throughout the area.  The goal of the chapter is to promote safety and security in every realm of the profession, including healthcare facilities, campus safety, corporate / commercial real estate, the public sector, critical infrastructure protection, and distribution centers.  This is accomplished by bringing together practitioners from every field and allowing them to support one another through the sharing of knowledge, ideas, and experience.  The Chapter also utilizes its various security providers and vendors, who champion the latest technology and developments in system upgrades and integration.
