SureID provides high-assurance identity solutions to critical infrastructure facilities with the same technology our partners in the Department of Defense rely on.
The Communications Sector is a vital piece of today’s American economy. Communication forms the foundation of all businesses, public safety organizations, and government.
Over the last 25 years, the sector has evolved from predominantly a provider of voice services into a diverse, competitive, and interconnected industry. The transmission of these services has become interconnected through multiple systems, including:
All of these transmission systems depend on one another to carry and terminate traffic, and private companies routinely share facilities and technology to ensure proper interoperability.
Presidential Policy Directive 21 has set apart the communications sector within America’s modern critical infrastructure. PPD-21 states that the communications industry enables all critical infrastructure sectors.
PPD-12 on Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience advances a unified, national effort to strengthen and maintain secure, functioning, and resilient critical infrastructure. As the owners and operators of the communications infrastructure, the private sector is responsible for protecting its infrastructure and assets. Alongside the federal government, the private sector is able to predict, anticipate, and respond to sector outages while learning how they might affect the ability of the United States to communicate during a crisis. As the communication sector impacts the operations of all other critical infrastructure sectors, it is vital that all communications within facilities are secure.
SureID provides high-assurance identity solutions that provide personnel surety to high-importance communication facilities. As the identity leader in the Personal Identity Verification – Interoperable (PIV-I) credentialing process, SureID brings the world’s best identity assurance processes to any high-security facility.
Alongside our partners in the Department of Defense, SureID has issued more than 200,000 PIV-I credentials to vendors, contractors, suppliers, and other third parties that require both physical and logical access into military installations. SureID’s rigorous PIV-I identity standards meet and exceed the PPD-21 requirements mandate, and all critical communication facilities can rely on the same multifactor authentication identity solutions that the Department of Defense uses every day.
