SIA Releases Privacy Framework
PRIVACYSeptember 10, 2010
The Security Industry Association (SIA) has released its 12-point Privacy Framework to address privacy concerns related to the recording of video, the collection of personally identifiable information and the use of biometrics, RFID and other security technologies. "While security without privacy is possible, privacy without security is impossible," Kathleen Carroll, the chair of the SIA Government Relations Department's State & Local Policy Working Group, said in a press release. The guidelines, she explained, show practical ways to apply responsible privacy protection throughout the security industry. The guidelines include such recommendations as conducting privacy impact assessments, implementing privacy by design principles, adopting a breach notification plan and establishing a retention policy and limiting access to personally identifiable information to those who "need to know."
