About Us

Purpose and History

We promote safe and secure communities by educating our security professionals in the latest technologies and best practices.

The San Diego chapter was established in 1965 as the 16th national chapter under the rules of ASIS International. Initial members were representatives of US government contractors and other security management professionals. Chapter membership now exceeds over 300 specialist security professionals from many commercial, industrial local and federal government organizations in the Greater San Diego area. Meetings are held monthly in San Diego with guest speakers representing interests of security professionals and the community.

ASIS International San Diego Chapter has provided more than 50 years of continuous education to the security professionals in our local region. Please join us in saluting our leaders over the last five decades and thank them for their service to our chapter.
