COVID-19 has created a unique situation that is making us recognize the need for preparedness to keep spaces where people gather safe. This includes our workplaces, airports, event venues, university campuses and other high traffic locations.
hc1 has been working with Daon, Inc. to use lessons learned from the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) on a solution to this current problem. On January 19 at 1 p.m., hc1 CEO Brad Bostic will join Daon CEO Tom Grissen and Tom Ridge, who served as the first Secretary of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and was twice elected Governor of Pennsylvania, and other health, data, security and identity experts for a roundtable discussion. The conversation will focus on The evolution of risk-based safety: from TSA PreCheck to COVID-19.
Employers, universities, event venues, airlines and many other businesses and organizations are currently seeking a way to safely re-open gathering spaces and to plan for and mitigate future risks to ensure spaces stay open. They need a solution that delivers accurate, authentic, real-time health verification while protecting individuals’ privacy and identity. Data points like vaccine status, COVID-19 viral testing results, and COVID-19 antibody testing results will play important roles in this effort alongside identity verification and data security controls.
How the TSA responded after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, can be used as a model approach. To achieve the same risk-based safety that revolutionized air travel with TSA PreCheck, we must now fuse to each trusted identity an array of verifiable health and wellness credentials, and do so in a way that users embrace, not reject. If you are a leader tackling how to reopen your space, please register now for this important discussion on how the principles of risk-based safety can help businesses and organizations reopen faster, welcome back their employees and customers, and create a safer, more prosperous new normal.
