SIA Government Summit To Examine Privacy And Security

Event scheduled for June 21-22 in Washington, D.C.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – A session at the Security Industry Association Government Summit next month will examine one of the most critical issues in the industry: how government privacy officials address the intersection of privacy and security when agencies implement government security initiatives.

Chief Privacy Officers (CPOs) perform unique responsibilities that differ between agencies and have a significant impact on the use of security technologies by public entities such as government agencies and federal grant recipients. The Government Summit roundtable discussion of “The Role of the Chief Privacy Officer and the SIA Privacy Framework” will address misperceptions regarding security and privacy and discuss the most effective ways to correct them. It will also address the differing roles and responsibilities of the CPO within a federal agency: as privacy advocate, compliance officer, evaluator of privacy risks, and developer of strategies to mitigate these risks and find the right balance between protecting personally identifiable information and encouraging the use of cutting-edge security technologies. This discussion will also include information about the Privacy Framework, an industry-leading document released by SIA in 2010 that outlines a set of privacy-protecting best practices to be used when deploying security technology.

“Privacy matters,” says SIA Director of Government Relations Don Erickson. “Our industry is impacted daily by concerns over the use of personally identifiable information. Much can be learned about the critical role performed by Chief Privacy Officers and the impact their work may have on the deployment of security technologies. This session will help do just that.”

The SIA Government Summit is scheduled for June 21-22 at the Phoenix Park Hotel in Washington, D.C. It will feature two of the nation’s leading political commentators – Bill Kristol and Bill Press – as well as Command Consulting Group founder Ralph Basham, who has served as commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, director of the U.S. Secret Service and chief of staff at the Transportation Security Administration. Additional featured speakers include Scott Broyles, president and CEO of Safe Skies Alliance, Steven Calvery, director of the Pentagon Force Protection Agency, and Thomas Cellucci, chief commercialization officer for the Department of Homeland Security. This year’s topics include HSPD-12, aviation security, biometrics and employee verification, the Federal Cloud Computing Initiative, homeland security funding and more.
