World’s Fourth Busiest Airport Benefits from Increased Efficiency and Flexibility of TSA-Authorized Service
ASHBURN, Va. – October 2, 2012 – Telos Identity Management Solutions LLC (Telos® ID) has been selected by Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport to provide Designated Aviation Channeling (DAC) services for processing employee and
contractor security threat assessments.
Telos ID is one of three vendors selected by the Transportation Security Administration to provide airports and airlines with aviation channeling services, and is the first vendor to be certified under the agreement announced by TSA last year.
Airports and air carriers use aviation channeling services to submit employee information to TSA so the agency can conduct background checks to identify those with disqualifying criminal histories or who may present a known or potential terrorist threat. TSA requires threat assessments to be conducted for all airport and airline employees with access to the secure areas of an airport, including its own employees, baggage handlers, ground maintenance providers, and restaurant and retail employees.
Telos ID’s DAC offering lets aviation-related employers more efficiently run their background check and badging operations. It meets TSA and Department of Homeland Security (DHS) regulations for handling personally identifiable information, and as a Web-based solution, it allows users to securely access the system wherever they have an Internet connection. Telos ID also provides additional customer service options and more visibility and flexibility for its customers.
“As one of the biggest and best-run airports in the world, DFW demands efficient, effective, and secure processes for managing its badged population of tens of thousands of employees,” said Mark Griffin, president of Telos ID. “We welcome DFW to our growing network of airports, and look forward to serving other airports throughout the country.”
