Thank you for attending SIA Honors Night: Celebrating Performance, Partnerships and People in the Security Industry, which recognized accomplishments in the security industry in the past year and raised money for a good cause!

On Wednesday, Nov. 20, the Security Industry Association (SIA) hosted an awards dinner at The Lighthouse at Chelsea Piers in New York City, in conjunction with ISC East, the premiere exposition in New York City for security professionals. Cygnus Business Media's Security Technology Executive (STE) magazine co-hosted SIA Honors Night and also presented the STE Security Innovation Awards to security project teams that have drawn accolades from the industry.

SIA congratulates Ray Dean, former vice president of key accounts for Stanley Convergent Security Solutions, for receiving the George R. Lippert Memorial Award for his outstanding contributions to SIA and the security industry.

Congratulations also to recipients of the STE Security Innovation Awards and the three projects highlighted in the awards—Securing Lady Liberty, Houston's Memorial Hermann Hospitals and Taino Towers. The Securing Lady Liberty team protected the Statue of Liberty during its refurbishment after Hurricane Sandy. STE also honored a team that secured Houston's Memorial Hermann Hospitals, a network of 13 facilities that underwent major upgrades across its enterprise recently, and a program to secure Taino Towers, a low-income housing project in East Harlem in New York City with a high-tech video surveillance solution.

SIA thanks the sponsors of SIA Honors Night, whose general support made the event possible while helping children in need around the world. A portion of the proceeds of SIA Honors Night benefits the Mission 500 non-profit organization, which encourages companies in the security industry to sponsor a child in need. Stay tuned for an announcement about next year's event in the coming months!
