About CSIA and ITAA

The members and programs of the Cyber Security Industry Alliance (CSIA) are joining the Information Technology Association of America (ITAA) as a means to create the industry?s premier cyber security public advocacy and awareness program. Bringing ITAA and its grassroots, national and global resources together with CSIA will create a united voice on critical information security policy issues.

CSIA's Board of Directors, made up of CEOs of the member companies, will become an advisory body to the ITAA Commercial Sector Board, and will lend guidance and strategic direction to the combined Information Security program. The CSIA Brussels office will continue to focus exclusively on cyber security working with both ITAA and WITSA. CSIA White Papers will be available through ITAA. With some members already in common, the addition of the CSIA companies increases ITAA membership to more than 350 companies. Final legal agreements are pending.

ITAA's information security program has offered leadership in public policy advocacy and market development for more than a decade. The Association is the premier IT and electronics industry association working to maintain America's role as the world's innovation headquarters.

With the April 1, 2008 merger of the Government Electronics and Information Technology Association (GEIA), ITAA provides leadership in market research, standards development, business development, networking and public policy advocacy to over 350 corporate members doing business in the public and commercial sector markets. These members range from the smallest start-ups to industry leaders offering Internet, software, services and hardware solutions.

ITAA offers the industry's only grassroots-to-global network, carrying the voice of IT to companies, markets and governments at the local, state, national and international levels to facilitate growth and advocacy. The Association maintains a formal alliance with more than 40 regional groups in the U.S. and Canada, representing 16,000 technology-related companies through The Technology Councils of North America (TECNA). It also serves as the U.S. member of the World Information Technology and Services Alliance, a network of nearly 70 industry associations from around the world. For more information, visit
