Security Industry Association (SIA) Chairman Denis Hebert recently announced that Kathleen Carroll, vice president of government affairs at HID Global, would assume responsibilities as chair of the SIA Data Privacy Advisory Board.
The Data Privacy Advisory Board was established in January to develop and promote guidelines related to enhancing the security of personally identifiable information (PII), protected health information (PHI) and other sensitive data. The responsibility for data security is widespread, and the board will work with manufacturers, integrators, end users and other stakeholders to promote the use of best practices at all levels.
“I am pleased to assume this new role at the Security Industry Association,” Carroll said. “As a Certified Privacy Professional, I’ve been working on the forefront of privacy considerations in the security industry at HID Global for more than a decade, and I’m pleased to have the opportunity to collaborate with my colleagues across the industry to support privacy guidelines for all Americans.”
Craig Sharman, director for federal government relations at Johnson Controls Inc. was also named chair of the SIA Government Relations Committee, a position previously held by Carroll.
“The fulfillment of these roles by Kathleen Carroll and Craig Sharman will benefit the security industry and safeguard precious advancements in advocacy,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “As top industry executives, they bring a wealth of expertise and contacts to the association, and I could not be prouder of their continued leadership in SIA affairs.”
