Security Industry Association Welcomes Peter Boriskin as Chair of SIA Standards Committee

The Security Industry Association (SIA) has named Peter Boriskin, chief technology officer at ASSA ABLOY Opening Solutions, as the new chair of SIA’s Standards Committee. In this role, Boriskin will lead and work with committee members to develop, promote and advocate industry standards in a coordinated effort with other standards and specification writing bodies.

“I am grateful to be appointed as chair of the SIA Standards Committee by SIA members. It is an exciting time to be in the security industry, as there have been tremendous technology advancements in the past few years. As technology continues to evolve, industry consensus on security solutions performance, safety and design will be crucial to its success in market,” said Boriskin. “The usage of artificial intelligence (AI) is a great example of this progress, as it has become a megatrend within our industry. Manufacturers, integrators and end users alike should consider how to properly integrate AI into services and solutions given the challenges on privacy, bias and limited knowledge. To begin the conversation, SIA held its first AI town hall this fall and looks to continue this dialogue with future offerings. We can also develop our thinking towards sustainability and stewardship. Topics such as circular economy and energy efficiency should be discussed within the security industry.”

Boriskin is an active member of SIA with over 20 years of experience working with security and safety technology, primarily in the enterprise security marketplace. Prior to his time at ASSA ABLOY, he served as product management leader for UTC Fire & Security in its Lenel business and as vice president of product management for Tyco International’s access control and video systems division. Before joining Tyco, Boriskin founded a networking company where he was owner and president. He has held certifications from Cisco, Microsoft and EMC and has a background in network security, threat assessment and incident management.

“SIA is honored to welcome Peter Boriskin as chair of SIA’s Standards Committee, and we appreciate his willingness to serve in this important capacity,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “Peter is a highly respected expert in physical security, video management and access control whose standards and technology leadership and knowledge will help the committee to deliver immense value to SIA’s members and the industry and increase participation in our standards programs.”

Boriskin is a member of several industry forums and working groups and was a founding member of the Open Security Exchange. He is also an active member of the Physical Security Interoperability Alliance and ASIS International and has given presentations and instructional seminars for SIA, ASIS, GSX and other security organizations. Boriskin holds a B.A. from Brandeis University and is based in the Boston, Massachusetts, area.

The SIA Standards Committee serves as the guiding body of SIA standards programs. Its members work together to develop, promote and advocate industry standards in a coordinated effort with other standards and specification writing bodies. SIA also acts as the secretariat for the Security Industry Standards Council (SISC) with the support of the Standards Committee. The SISC serves as the guiding body for standards activities of two major security industry standards developing organizations – The Monitoring Association and SIA.

SIA would like to thank outgoing SIA Standards Committee Chair Steve Van Till – co-founder, president and CEO of Brivo – for his 11 years of service and leadership as chair.
