For his unwavering commitment to ASIS education at all levels, Milton Moritz, CPP, has been named the first recipient of the Don Walker Award for Enterprise Security Executive Leadership, the newest of the prestigious ASIS awards to worthy members. ASIS President Eduard J. Emde, CPP, presented the award to the surprised Moritz at Monday’s Networking Luncheon.
The award recognizes Moritz’s support and encouragement of continuing security education and certification. He served as a trusted program advisor for the Assets Protection Course I program during the 1990s. During his tenure, he revised the week-long course to provide opportunities for acknowledged leaders in the security profession to share their expertise with attendees through case studies and examples. Considered a must for all security professionals, this course introduces the basic concepts of security and loss prevention.
Moritz also was a program advisor for the Certified Protection Professional (CPP) review programs and taught many iterations of the review held on the weekend before the ASIS Annual Seminar and Exhibits. In this role, he has helped numerous U.S. and international ASIS members study for and pass the exam to become CPPs. In 2011, Moritz was one of two instructors to present a live online offering of the CPP review to a group in India.
Moritz has also helped ASIS extend its educational programs into the international community, specifically the Middle East. He has been a steady hand in the conception and delivery of many courses targeted to regional security concerns and interests.
The 1986 president of ASIS International, Moritz is a Life Member and a member of the Quarter Century Club. Though retired, Moritz continues to be involved with the ASIS Harrisburg Chapter and its annual educational forum.
