SILVER SPRING, Md.—The Security Industry Association (SIA) has named Antoinette King as the 2022 recipient of the SIA Chair’s Award, an award presented annually and selected by SIA’s Board of Directors chair recognizing SIA members’ diligent efforts in furthering the association’s mission and commitment to its future.

SIA will present King with the award at The Advance, SIA’s annual membership meeting, which will be held March 22 during ISC West in Las Vegas.

King, founder of Credo Cyber Consulting, LLC, has 21 years of experience in the security industry. She has held roles within the industry that include engineered systems specialist, operations manager, regional sales manager and key account manager in both integration and manufacturing companies. King founded Credo Cyber Consulting in 2020 with the goal of providing clients a holistic perspective on security, bridging the gap between the physical and cybersecurity domains with a focus on data privacy and protection.

“Antoinette King is a true leader in the security industry whose dedicated efforts and service to SIA have been invaluable,” said Pierre Trapanese, chair of the SIA Board of Directors. “Antoinette’s active involvement in SIA’s cybersecurity and data privacy initiatives, her work to engage young professionals and students in security careers and her prolific thought leadership and educational contributions have strengthened the security industry and are driving SIA’s mission forward. We are proud to honor her with the 2022 SIA Chair’s Award.”

King holds the Physical Security Professional (PSP) and Data Privacy Protection Specialist (DPPS) certifications and SIA’s Security Industry Cybersecurity Certification (SICC), as well as a M.S. in cybersecurity policy and risk analysis, a B.S. in managing security systems and an A.S. in criminal justice. King has published and presented on various security topics in several capacities, including articles, white papers, keynotes, webinars, panel discussions and corporate talks.

“It is an absolute honor to be selected for this award," King told Security Systems News. "I am so grateful to work alongside so many talented and bright professionals at SIA. I look forward to continuing the work of advancing the security industry.”

King is an active member of SIA who serves as the vice chair of SIA’s Cybersecurity Advisory Board, a board-appointed group of industry cybersecurity experts who guides SIA members ahead of potential cybersecurity issues related to electronic physical security measures. She has been a contributor to the SIA SICC program, SIA’s student outreach and key SIA RISE community offerings and has served as a SIAcademy LIVE! course instructor and presented at ISC East.

She is also a member of SIA’s Data Privacy Advisory Board, which provides information and best practices to help SIA members handle sensitive data in a safe and secure manner to protect the personally identifiable information of their employees, partners and customers from potential breaches. Through her role with the advisory board, she has presented during SIA webinars, helped develop papers and spoken at ISC West on privacy topics. King also serves on SIA’s Ethics Working Group.

“I am humbled and honored to have been chosen for the 2022 SIA Chair’s Award, and I want to thank Pierre Trapanese for selecting me,” King said. “I often refer to SIA as the industry association known for ‘doing.’ I am grateful to be a part of an organization that focuses on the education and advancement of the security industry and its professionals. Having an opportunity to contribute to the Cybersecurity and Data Privacy Advisory Boards, as well as working with the SIA student outreach group, is a great privilege that I do not take lightly. I look forward to continuing the work we do in support of the mission of SIA as the catalyst of growth within the global security industry.”

In addition to her work with SIA, King’s participation in security industry associations includes serving as ASIS International’s assistant regional vice president of Region 5D, a member of ASIS’ Women in Security (WIS) Global Council and co-chair of the WIS Publications Committee. She is also affiliated with industry associations Women in Cybersecurity and InfraGard.

King, who is a member of Security Systems News’ Advisory Board, will be moderating a panel discussion on “The First 48 Hours of a Cyber Event” during SSN’s SecurityNext Conference in Nashville April 25-27. The panel, featuring Barbee Mooneyhan, VP of Security, CISO/CPO, Woebot Health, and Will Knehr, Senior Manager of Information Security and Data Privacy, Panasonic i-PRO Sensing Solutions Corp. of America, will be discussing real-world examples of what the first 48 hours of a cyber event looks like and what you need to do to prepare for a cyberattack.

The Advance 2022 will take place on Tuesday, March 22, at 10:30 a.m. PDT during ISC West. At this special membership meeting, attendees will review official association business, recognize volunteer achievements from the past year and exchange market intelligence for the year ahead. This year’s The Advance event will feature a presentation from special guest speaker Matt Barnette, CEO of PSA Security Network. In addition to presenting the SIA Chair’s Award, SIA will honor the 2022 recipients of the SIA Member of the Year Award, Sandy Jones Volunteer of the Year Award and Committee Chair of the Year Award. Learn more and register to attend.
