At Tuesday’s luncheon, the new Board Management Committee of the ASIS Board of Directors for 2012 was announced by ASIS Chairman of the Board of Directors Joseph Granger, CPP. “The Board met yesterday…and elected to the office of secretary Dave N. Tyson, CPP, of Apollo Information Systems,” Granger told the audience.
Before joining Apollo, a security-focused, value-added reseller located in Los Gatos, California, Tyson was the chief information security officer for Pacific Gas & Electric in San Francisco, California. He began his security career as an executive protection specialist and has held increasingly responsible security management positions during a 28-year career.
A member of the San Francisco Bay Area Chapter, Tyson joined ASIS in 1997. In addition to the ASIS Board of Directors, Tyson has served on the Professional Certification Board, been a regional vice president, and chaired the Information Technology and Security Council.
Tyson has been the recipient of numerous awards, including the 2005 Security Pioneer Award bestowed by the Canadian Chapters of ASIS, and has been an active participant in various information security professional organizations. He has been published in several security magazines and in 2007 authored the book Security Convergence: Managing Enterprise Security Risk.
“In accordance with the bylaws of the Society, each of the previously elected officers ascends automatically to the next office,” Granger explained.
The new chairman of the Board will be this year’s ASIS president, Raymond T. O’Hara, CPP, of Andrews International, Palm Desert, California. The Society’s president in 2012 will be its current president-elect, Eduard J. Emde, CPP, of BMKISS Europe. The president-elect in 2012 will be the current treasurer, Geoffrey T. Craighead, CPP, of Universal Protective Service, Santa Ana, California. The formal installation of the 2012 officers and Board members will take place at the Annual Meeting of the Membership in Arlington, Virginia, in January.
