“I am honored to be named an honorary member of SIA.

Bozeman’s long history of active involvement with SIA includes working on the creation of a formal membership category for independent integrators in 2012; collaborating on the development and execution of Cyber:Secured Forum, an event co-created by SIA, PSA and RX and held in 2018 and 2019; strongly supporting SIA’s Security Industry Cybersecurity Certification (SICC) credential; ensuring SIA’s representation on PSA’s State of the Industry Panel for several years; serving for four years on the SIA Board of Directors; serving as chair of SIA’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) Advisory Board; and presenting at SIA and industry events including Securing New Ground and ISC West.
