On April 13, 2015, Securiport, a global leader in the design and implementation of passenger biometric recognition, civil aviation security, immigration control systems and intelligent information management and reporting software systems, was awarded a certificate of appreciation for their participation and active involvement in the Ebola epidemic surveillance and control program, during the 2015 CAN.
As part of the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare Secretary of State Aid and Hospital Care, the National Technical Committee for Monitoring and Controlling the Ebola Epidemic awarded Securiport the certificate of appreciation for their efficient cooperation and coordination in the effort to monitor and control the epidemic. Securiport was vital in providing and highlighting the locations of the hydroalcoholic gel dispensers for cleaning and sanitizing within airport terminals.
In addition, Securiport operated its Epidemic Control System (ECS) within their Integrated Immigration Control System (IICS) already in place at the airport terminal. The ECS provided unique tools for airport security and immigration officials, specifically aimed to curb the spread of an infectious disease, such as Ebola, by identifying possible carriers through documenting transit behavior, otherwise known as contract tracing.
