Secure Identity & Biometrics Association Names Troy Potter of L-3 National Security Solutions as Chairman

The Secure Identity & Biometrics Association (SIBA), announced their selection of Troy Potter of L-3 National Security Solutions (NSS) as Chairman, effective immediately. SIBA is a non-profit association that was established in February 2014 to steadfastly promote responsible policy, education and implementation of solutions that protect and secure identity across private and public platforms.

Potter was chosen because of his vast experience in both the government and industry. He served as the Identity Services Branch (ISB) Deputy Assistant Director at the US Visitor and Immigrant Status Indicator Technology (US-VISIT) program and was US-VISIT’s Biometrics systems program manager for a number of years, responsible for the management and oversight of one of the largest biometrics systems in the world. Today Potter is the vice president of L-3 NSS’ Global Solutions Sector and leads all L-3 NSS Border Security and Biometrics programs.

"I am very pleased to chair SIBA, which has rapidly established itself as the leading resource to proactively create awareness and promotethe value of identity technologies and biometric solutions to enhance the security of individuals as well as organizations and the government," said Potter. "I look forward to working with SIBA CEO Janice Kephart and the board to continue the significant progress the association has made," he added.

Potter takes over as Chairman from former Animetrics CEO Paul Schuepp who served with outstanding leadership in the formative stages of SIBA. Schuepp said, "I believe strongly in the SIBA mission, and am very proud of how far SIBA has come in a short while. With persistence, strategic vision and credibility, SIBA is already well-respected by government, the private sector, and the media. I am so pleased with how serious our work is valued."

Recently CEO Kephart was asked to testify before the Senate Homeland Security Committee on a key biometric border issue. In addition, SIBA is galvanizing industry-leading companies and trade associations to come together to address core federal government biometric challenges.

The SIBA board continues to attract proven expertise in identity management and biometric solutions, high technology government relations and commercialization, and the defense, intelligence and homeland security communities both domestically and overseas.

"When we began on this journey to create an organization that was as cutting-edge and game-changing as the identity solutions SIBA sought to represent, we never imagined the exceptional growth and quality of membership we would have," said Kephart. "I look forward to working with Mr. Potter, our Board and our growing membership to expand our presence in the identity market," she added.
