Michael Bruce, director at General Dynamics’ mission systems business, and Ella Schiralli, federal government markets manager at 3M, have been named to the board of directors of the Secure Identity & Biometrics Association.
Michael Dougherty, CEO of SIBA, said in a statement released Wednesday Bruce and Schiralli will provide insights to the board in an effort to help SIBA educate legislators about the advantages of biometrics and identity management platforms as well as advance discussions on biometrics tools between government agencies and industry.
Eight companies have joined SIBA as new members in 2016. The firms include:
- Advanced Optical Systems
- Disaster Solutions
- General Dynamics Mission Systems
SIBA also conducted the Identity and Biometrics Innovation Forum in June to tackle traveler management issues and screening systems with industry and government participants.
