SIA Publishes Privacy Code of Conduct; Will Host Lunch ‘n’ Learn
The publication is said to be designed to help security technology companies enhance their management of personal information.
SILVER SPRING, Md. – The Security Industry Association (SIA) has released its new Privacy Code of Conduct, a resource designed to guide security technology companies in implementing privacy programs and protecting personal data.
The document was created by SIA’s Data Privacy Advisory Board, a group of SIA members that produces resources and events aimed at promoting a better understanding of the role of privacy in the security industry.
SIA’s Privacy Code of Conduct includes a set of principles based on the premises that privacy is a fundamental right and that privacy rights deserve the highest level of commitment from SIA member organizations.
“SIA is proud to continue its leading role on what has quickly become one of the most impactful issues in the industry,” SIA CEO Don Erickson says. “It is essential that SIA members and others implement sound privacy policies for both legal and reputational reasons, and the Privacy Code of Conduct can form the basis of those policies.”
The SIA Data Privacy Advisory Board plans to provide more specific guidance in its Privacy Code of Practice, which will be released July 20 during a special privacy lunch and learn event at ISC West.
At this event, attendees will hear a keynote presentation from Erik Jones, a partner at Venable LLP with expertise in data privacy and legal and regulatory risk and a roundtable discussion with privacy experts and enjoy lunch and networking with other industry professionals.
