SIA policy priorities

Border Security

SIA believes that between points of entry, security technology can play a key role in providing persistent surveillance at the border, detecting breaches of physical barriers and promoting a rapid response to border incursions, especially in areas that are otherwise difficult for the U.S. Border Patrol to monitor and protect.


SIA members play an important role in helping the federal government achieve the key cybersecurity and national security protections called for in Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12, and SIA supports the development of a federal IT modernization fund.

Patent Reform

SIA supports legislation that cracks down on abuses by patent trolls, which thwart technological innovation and cost manufacturers millions of dollars each year.

Participate in the Security PAC

SIA launched the Security PAC to help fund political action advancing the needs of SIA members. We’re looking for help from members like you.
