Dell EMC’s Mills Honored for Cybersecurity Work

Ken Mills, GM of surveillance and security for Dell EMC, has been honored by the security trade group the Security Industry Association (SIA) with its SIA Chairman’s Award, recognizing his work on cybersecurity initiatives in the industry.

Mills, who serves on the 700-member strong SIA’s board of directors and Cybersecurity Advisory Board, has been a proponent of cybersecurity measures for physical security devices on networks, along with better security measures surround the Internet of Things (IoT), according to SIA.

“Cybersecurity challenges pose significant risks to security companies that long underrated the vulnerabilities of their own equipment, ironically designed to protect lives and property,” Mills said. “Faced with the added rush to connect even more devices through the Internet of Things, security companies are catching up fast by hardening their devices where appropriate. I’m pleased to contribute what I can to these efforts through my service to SIA, and I’m humbled to receive the SIA Chairman’s Award.”

SIA chairman Denis Hébert will present the award to Mills April 4 during the International Security Conference (ISC) West in Las Vegas.

“I work regularly with Ken Mills on the SIA board of directors, and with every conversation, I am struck by Ken’s articulate, thoughtful vision of the trajectory of the security industry,” Hébert said. “His preparedness is further evidenced by his participation in the SIA Cybersecurity Advisory Board, where he has been ahead of the curve in tracking cybersecurity concerns for physical security technologies and the Internet of Things.”
