In early June, 2013, the SIA Security Industry Association organized its Government Summit in Washington DC at the W Hotel. Our company EuropeSecurityNews.com ESN was represented in that event by our Director Owner Victor Bjorgan.

The goals of the Summit were the following:

* Security industry leaders discussed trends related to the government sector,

* SIA leaders exchanged information about methods of identity/access control,

* the GSA schedules program,

* the convergence of physical and logical security,

* data management

* and increased situational awareness.

During the 2013 Summit,  panels featuring leading congressional and federal agency officials discussed the status and opportunities for industry input on legislation dealing with issues such as the biometric exit system for foreign nationals, DHS procurement reform, cybersecurity and the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism Standards (CFATS) program.
