We are the Academy of Security Educators and Trainers, an organization of security professionals dedicated to explore the large spectrum of issues confronting the security field. We meet to discuss, to design, to develop, and to exchange thoughts and ideas in an open forum.
The Academy of Security Educators and Trainers (ASET) was founded in 1980 as a non-profit professional society. The current membership of hundreds of men and women includes: academics, trainers, students, law enforcement and government officials from National, State and local agencies; self-employed professionals; and security officers, supervisors and directors from major international corporations, banks, transportation industry,security service organizations, communications, energy, retail, chemicals, insurance, petroleum and utility companies.
