To enhance its cybersecurity posture going forward from National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, the Security Industry Association (SIA) has announced the empaneling of the SIA Cybersecurity Advisory Board.

The SIA Board of Directors voted to establish the Cybersecurity Advisory Board in July.

“In our increasingly networked world, SIA requires its Cybersecurity Advisory Board to guide it ahead of potential cybersecurity issues related to electronic physical security measures,” said SIA Chairman V. John Stroia. “To that end, we have recruited the best and the brightest to serve as advisors on the Cybersecurity Advisory Board and to prescribe and to advocate for cybersecurity strategies and solutions. Following these prescriptions will surely position SIA to prepare its members for challenges related to wider adoption of the Internet of Things and the use of personal devices for security access.”

The empanelment of the SIA Cybersecurity Advisory Board follows last month’s introduction of the Connected Security Expo @ ISC West by ISC Events. The conference led event will debut April 6-8, 2016, in Las Vegas, and it will be co-located with the largest physical security event in the Americas, ISC West sponsored by SIA. The Connected Security Expo @ ISC West sponsored by SIA is a conference led event where industry professionals will experience physical security from an IT security lens.
