"The new SICC was born out of the recognition that the security of installed systems depends on the knowledge and qualifications of those who install and configure them. This certification is an important step in the provisioning of cyber-secure systems."

– Ray Coulombe, managing director, Security Specifiers

"The daily news underscores the critical importance of cybersecurity awareness, hygiene and training. This new cyber certification program specifically and proactively addresses those important concerns with a cyber certification designed especially for our security industry. PSA is proud to be an active co-contributor to this program."

– Ric McCullough, president, PSA Security Network

"The SICC provides a means for workers in the industry to demonstrate an understanding of cybersecurity and how it applies to the systems that they install and service. It also provides a solid foundation to build upon as changes occur in cybersecurity in the future."

– Chris Peckham, chair, SIA Learning and Development Committee; director of operations, Ollivier Corporation

"Integrators and vendors that possess certifications like the SICC demonstrate that they have the cybersecurity skills/knowledge on physical security systems, which provides clear advantage over others during the selection process of a competitive bid."

– Michael Bendis, associate partner, Syska Hennessy Group

"The SICC was a challenging examination of my knowledge and expertise in security system design, installation and configuration. This credential will become a ‘must have’ for integrators and is likely to become a requirement for installation of networked security system by specifiers." 

– Don Kwietniak, SICC, manager of IT services, Securitronics

“We will be making the SICC certification part of our essential staff training to ensure everyone in our organization has the skills and knowledge they need to face changing cybersecurity challenges and build innovative, secure solutions for our customers.”
