The Air Force Major General and former deputy national security advisor join Fareed Zakaria and Scott Klososky as featured speakers at GSX.
ALEXANDRIA, Va. — ASIS Int’l has filled out its keynote roster for the upcoming Global Security Exchange (GSX) in Las Vegas. The organization announced Thursday that Air Force Major General Bradley D. Spacy and K.T. McFarland, a former Trump administration deputy national security advisor, will be featured presenters.
“Our keynote lineup — featuring recognized experts in global affairs, technological innovation and industry transformation — delivers on our new brand promise to host a truly comprehensive global event,” says Richard E. Chase, 2018 president, ASIS Int’l. “These speakers provide diverse perspectives that will set the tone for each day and bring to light both the risks and opportunities facing the profession and businesses at-large.”
As Commander of the Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center, General Spacy is responsible for mission support capabilities to 77 Air Force installations, nine major commands and two direct reporting units with an annual budget of approximately $10 billion. His Sept. 26 keynote, kicking off Military and Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, will examine the changing security landscape, both in the U.S. and around the world.
In addition, Spacy will provide details on the new AFWERX innovation and tech hub in Las Vegas and how the Air Force is looking to collaborate with the private sector to bring new security product ideas to market. Attendees will also learn about the evolving AFWERX/ASIS partnership and will be the first to hear a special announcement about the AFWERX Challenge.
McFarland will close out the conference on Sept. 27 with her address, which will take attendees on a fast-paced geopolitical tour around the globe. As the first deputy national security advisor in the Trump Administration, she will share an insider’s perspective on critical foreign policy and defense issues. McFarland’s presentation is open to all GSX registrants — including Expo-only registration.
Spacy and McFarland join the GSX keynote program, which includes CNN Host Fareed Zakaria and futurist Scott Klososky.
In the first year of its rebrand following a 63-year history as the ASIS Int’l Seminar and Exhibits, GSX is expected to attract more than 20,000 operational and cybersecurity professionals, along with 550 exhibitors to the Las Vegas Convention Center, Sept. 23-27.
