Center of Excellence

The SIA Center of Excellence is growing fast!

As of today, more than 170 different pieces of content on topics ranging from active shooter mitigation practices to cybersecurity risk management are now available within the Center – and we have even more contributions we’re in the process of reviewing and posting right now! The Center is rapidly capturing the attention of SIA members and their partners and customers, with traffic increasing dramatically since our launch approximately one year ago.

The mission of the SIA Center of Excellence is a FREE online platform for SIA members to share their training and expertise with potential partners and customers. The Center reflects our industry’s long-standing commitment to continuously build the security ecosystem’s body of knowledge.
