Strategic Plan 2018 - 2023

 

ASIS New Zealand exists in a rapidly changing environment and needs to change to keep up.  Young people looking at moving into security management have a plethora of organisations to choose from, where they can gain knowledge, qualifications and contacts.  Our organisation needs to articulate who we are, what we offer and why we should be the choice for security management education.

Also, we know the organisation doesn't serve all New Zealand members equally:

  • There are no meetings for members outside Auckland as it has been difficult to find local members who would like to host or facilitate the sessions
  • It's hard finding volunteer leaders
  • There is limited representation from IT security and big New Zealand companies
  • We lack diversity, making it harder to recruit

It's time to make decisions about the direction of the organistion, change what we don't like and create a sustainable ASIS NZ.

We have written a Strategic Plan for 2018 - 2023 which was presented at this year's Annual General Meeting.   Click here to download a coy of the Strategic Plan.

 

Please note: Guest speakers and agenda will be arranged prior to each activity however if you would like to assist in any way (e.g. record attendance, greet attendees, host an activity at your premises) that would be very much appreciated.  If you would like to be a Guest Speaker please feel free to contact us - we'll love to hear from you.
