The Security Industry Association (SIA) recently named Tina D’Agostin, CEO of Alcatraz AI, to the inaugural honoree list for the "SIA Women in Security Forum Power 100" ranking. Newly launched in 2022, the initiative, presented by the SIA Women in Security Forum, honors 100 women in the security industry each year "who are role models for actively advancing diversity, equity, inclusion, innovation, and leadership in the community," as stated by SIA.
Alcatraz AI is an artificial intelligence company that employs facial authentication technology to create autonomous access control solutions for enterprises. D’Agostin previously served as the chief revenue officer for Alcatraz AI, responsible for driving top-line growth and expanding Alcatraz’s footprint globally. As CEO, she plans to take Alcatraz AI into its next chapter to modernize the access control industry.
D’Agostin has over 25 years of experience within the security technology and solutions industry, with leadership experience building high-performing organizations in hardware, IT, and smart technologies. Before Alcatraz AI, she was the general manager of the Building Technology & Solutions division at Johnson Controls, focused on delivering smart building technologies to global companies.
“My goal at Alcatraz AI is always to secure spaces and create cutting-edge security solutions,” said D’Agostin. “I am deeply honored that my mission and work were recognized as part of the 2022 Power 100 among so many inspirational women. I am also thankful to SIA for making sure that female leaders and entrepreneurs in the field are acknowledged and celebrated.”
D'Agostin currently serves on the board at the Bay Area Council and is a contributing member of the Forbes Technology Council.
“The SIA Women in Security Forum is thrilled to recognize Tina D’Agostin as one of the women of the 2022 Power 100 – an accomplished, impactful group who are modeling leadership, inspiring others, and shaping and transforming the security industry,” commented SIA Women in Security Forum Chair Kasia Hanson. “We applaud Tina D’Agostin and the rest of the 2022 honorees for their meaningful contributions to the industry and the larger community and look forward to celebrating their achievements at ISC West.”
The Power 100 announcement came on March 8, International Women’s Day, a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women and presenting a call to action for accelerating women’s equality. SIA supports International Women’s Day and launched the SIA Women in Security Forum on this day in 2018.
“The SIA Women in Security Forum Power 100 list inspires the global security industry,” said SIA CEO Don Erickson. "The inaugural class of Power 100 honorees are true leaders and trailblazers in the security industry and are making a difference in diversity, equity and inclusion. On International Women’s Day, we thank these inspiring women for their outstanding achievements and the actions they take every day for equality without any expectation of recognition.”
