Security Industry Association and Government Technology and Services Coalition Announce Collaboration

The two organizations will share their resources in order to build a stronger security industry.

The Security Industry Association (SIA) and the Government Technology & Services Coalition (GTSC) have announced a new strategic collaboration between the two organizations.

Through this collaboration, SIA and GTSC will work together on advocacy and public policy efforts to develop joint programs and content for members of both organizations. Members will also receive a variety of benefits, including discounted registrations to SIA and GTSC events, access to publications and discounts for exhibiting at ISC East and ISC West.

“I’m very excited about the relationship with the Government Technology & Services Coalition,” said Don Erickson, CEO of SIA. “This collaboration creates yet another benefit for our members. Small and mid-size companies can benefit from receiving member pricing for GTSC events, and it offers additional networking opportunities for SIA and GTSC members.”

“We look forward to GTSC members participating in SIA’s programs, and believe our members have much to contribute to theirs as well.” Erickson added.

“GTSC is very excited about the collaboration with SIA because it enhances the products and technologies available for the Federal homeland and national security mission. SIA members interested in the Federal market will have the opportunity to bring their technological innovations to a host of technology and service providers already working with the Federal community,” said CEO and founder of GTSC Kristina Tanasichuk. “This collaboration will help ensure that Federal agencies with homeland and national security missions have access to the latest market innovations and Commercial, Off-the-Shelf Technologies (COTS) necessary to achieve their mission.”
