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. The SIA Standards Committee is chaired by a member of the committee and comprised of Standards Subcommittee Chairs and participants with specific interest areas from the security industry.

The SIA Standards Committee also coordinates and takes a leadership role in the following activities:

  • Security Industry Standards Council (SISC) – The SISC serves as the guiding body for standards activities of three major Security Industry SDOs – SIA Standards, the Central Station Alarm Association and the Electronic Security Association (formerly the National Burglar and Fire Alarm Association).
  • Cloud & Mobility Steering Group – As a precursor to a new SIA standards subcommittee, the cloud steering group is currently working toward defining SIA standards’ role in the rapidly advancing field of cloud services and mobility. The group will soon be seeking wider industry input on its first deliverable – a technology application paper.


  • Development of SIA Standards educational track at ISC West
