The Security Industry Association (SIA) has selected Andrew Lanning as the 2019 recipient of the Jay Hauhn Excellence in Partnerships Award, an annual distinction recognizing leadership in security industry collaboration. Lanning — a co-founder of Integrated Security Technologies — serves as a member of SIA’s Cybersecurity Advisory Board, which guides SIA members ahead of potential cyber security issues related to physical security measures, and holds a board of directors position with — and serves as the defense industrial base sector chief for — the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s InfraGard Hawaii Members Alliance. SIA will present the award to Lanning during SIA Honors Night on Wednesday, Nov. 20, in New York City.
“Andrew Lanning has consistently advocated for industry collaboration, including between SIA’s manufacturer members and PSA Security Network, best seen through his vocal support for joint programming like Cyber:Secured Forum,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. “SIA applauds Andrew’s leadership in fostering industry partnerships and looks forward to presenting him with this prestigious, well-deserved award at SIA Honors Night.”
Lanning also serves as a defense industrial base representative on the PSA Security Network’s Cyber Security Committee, participates in the UL Cybersecurity Standards Technical Panel for Software Cybersecurity for Networking-Connectible Products, previously served on the board of directors of the Hawaii Information, Communication and Technology Association and is a member of the Rotary Club of Hickam Pearl Harbor. He is an active member of the Federal Law Enforcement Foundation and the host of Security Matters: Hawaii, a community-based webcast.
“I would like to accept this award and thank SIA, PSA and especially both organizations’ cyber security committee members, past and present, for continuing to drive our vision of the electronic security industry as a reliable cyber security supply chain partner to our country’s critical infrastructure operators, government agencies and the U.S. Department of Defense,” Lanning said.
Lanning has encouraged organizations such as InfraGard to participate in SIA’s cyber security education offerings and served as an active member of the SIA and Electronic Security Association task force that successfully recommended a joint strategy to help members identify, recruit and retain qualified employees for a variety of professional roles within manufacturer and integrator businesses.
The Jay Hauhn Excellence in Partnerships Award is named in honor of security industry veteran Jay Hauhn. During his tenure as SIA’s chairman of the board, Hauhn demonstrated a steadfast commitment to fostering cooperation among industry trade associations, and this award recognizes a leader who embodies that spirit of collaboration in the industry.
