On 17th Sep., 2014, ASIS Dubai Chapter 250 successfully organized a dinner meeting at Dusit Thani Hotel. The dinner meeting format was made possible through sponsorship from Cisco. The Dubai chapter takes this opportunity to thank our chapter member Ifty Hassan from Cisco for arranging this sponsorship.
Following the committee’s welcome address the members enjoyed a buffet dinner provided by the sponsor. The agenda included updates to the chapter’s website, women in security, young professionals, ASIS foundation’s award & scholarships, and news on ASIS achievements. We were also honored with a distinguished guest, Mr Marius Strydom, CPP the Chairman of the Abu Dhabi chapter.
Mr. Peter Page, CPP (Secretary for Dubai chapter) was congratulated by the members for being awarded the ‘PCB Regional Award of Merit’. This award recognizes volunteer leaders, who dedicated their time, energy, and resources to the advancement of ASIS board certifications. Peter Page, CPP also leads the chapter’s certification sub-committee. Several members expressed their personal thanks to Peter for supporting their CPP study progress with one member stating that without Peter’s time and support he would not have achieved his CPP.
Mr. Ifty Hassan and Mr. Doug Fleming from Cisco were the meeting guest speakers. They presented on the topic of “Employee Safety on Global Scale”, and how Cisco provides their internal platforms and support enabling them to manage regional security concerns and interact with the internal and external stakeholders in the context of dynamic global situations.
