Commercial Facility Security Solutions

SureID Is a Leading Provider for High-assurance Identity for Critical Infrastructure

SureID provides high-assurance identity solutions to critical infrastructure facilities with the same technology our partners in the Department of Defense rely on.

CFATS Security Mandates for High-risk Commercial Facilities

The Commercial Facilities Sector includes a diverse range of venues that draw large crowds of people for shopping, business, entertainment, or lodging. Facilities within the sector operate on the principle of open public access, meaning that the general public can move freely without the deterrent of highly visible security barriers.

The majority of these facilities are privately owned and operated, with minimal interaction with the federal government and other regulatory entities. This sector consists of eight subsectors:

  • entertainment and media (motion picture studios, broadcast media, etc.),
  • gaming (casinos, etc.),
  • lodging (hotels, motels, conference centers, etc.),
  • outdoor events (amusement parks, fairs, campgrounds, parades, etc.),
  • public assembly (arenas, stadiums, zoos, museums, convention centers, etc.),
  • real estate (office and apartment buildings, condominiums, mixed use facilities, self-storage, etc.),
  • retail (retail centers and districts, shopping malls, etc.), and
  • sports leagues (professional sports leagues and federations).


Presidential Policy Directive 21 (PPD-21) for the Commercial Facilities Sector

The Commercial Facilities Sector-Specific Plan details a risk management framework for each critical infrastructure sector. Each sector has a unique set of characteristics and risk landscape through identity assurance and physical access control systems (PACS) that are universal throughout. The Department of Homeland Security is designated as the sector-specific agency for the Commercial Facilities Sector.
