Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC): Leveraging TWIC’s Identity Management Mediocrity into Better Risk Mitigation

This webinar occurred on:  November 19, 2014


While TWIC has had a dynamic public relations history since its inception, this joint Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) administered program is the first of its kind, in the modern era, to support maritime security risk reduction through identity management—and it has succeeded by establishing a risk mitigation baseline. To fully leverage TWIC, security officers must integrate it into the body of their overall security strategy. While those strategies are largely crafted to meet regulatory plan standards, shrewd security officers may want to build upon TWIC requirements to raise their identity management risk mitigation baseline.

Captain Mark Johnson, VP of Strategic Accounts at Eid Passport® and a seasoned expert in maritime vulnerability assessments, will discuss how maritime risk mitigation can be made more robust by using proven identity management solutions.  Some topics Mr. Johnson will cover include: protecting maritime infrastructure, enhancing current TWIC security plan integration, and reviewing current and emerging identity management requirements for facilities and vessels. Regulatory and compliance personnel working at maritime facilities, and interested in more secure and reliable identification of the contractors they do business with, should attend this webinar.
