Identification of Essential Critical Infrastructure Workers During the COVID-19 Pandemic
As we are part of providing infrastructure security, Veridt continues to provide product and support to our stakeholders throughout government and the military. We are taking all necessary steps to insure we continue to operate uncompromised during this crisis. As of March 19th, 2020, The Federal Emergency Management Association (FEMA) and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) has identified our industry as Essential Critical Infrastructure Workforce during this pandemic. This means that Veridt has a responsibility and duty to continue business functions as we regularly would.
Our mission is to continue the timely delivery of quality products and provide a high level of on-going customer support to our stakeholders. We are taking all appropriate measures to insure the Veridt team is there to accomplish the mission with minimum team members’ personal risk. As part of those precautions, travel will be limited to emergency customer support only until further notice. We will be adopting other measures internally to minimize risk enabling us to provide that high level of support to you.
Global Supply Chain
The Veridt supply chain team is well prepared because of our risk-based management structure to help ensure business continuity throughout our supply chain. While we are not totally unaffected, our supply chain is well prepared to respond appropriately. At this time, our lead times are not greatly affected. Additionally, we have taken appropriate measures to increase our inventory levels so that we can mitigate any short falls in parts availability that may occur in the near future. This is a dynamic situation. We will provide timely updates as conditions change.
We share the concern for the spread of the COVID-19 virus. If you have a Veridt Biometric Reader or Veridt GuestPass enrollment system and more than one person uses the same fingerprint reader, we recommend that you clean and disinfect the fingerprint sensor between users.
We recommend any paper or microfiber tissue saturated with Isopropyl Alcohol; 70 % and 91 % alcohol strength are commonly available. Tissues or wipes containing at least 60% alcohol are effective in killing most viruses including COVID-19 (CDC website). While other disinfectants or anti-microbial sprays or wipes may contain a statement regarding its effectiveness against COVID-19, depending on the ingredients, they may damage the fingerprint sensor.
Isopropyl alcohol is effective as a disinfectant and is sensor safe.
If you have Veridt Non-Bio Readers, you can also use any Plus 70% Isopropyl Alcohol wipes to clean surfaces of the reader.
Risk Mitigation & Mission Critical Operations
In cases where cleaning sensors between use is not practical, you may consider resetting the authentication mode to a non-fingerprint Biometric authentication mode such as “CARD ONLY”. If you require assistance contact your PACS supplier.
