COVID-19: Corsec Continues to Operate

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic around the globe, Corsec staff have transitioned to a telework policy to ensure the health and wellbeing of our staff, their family, and the community.

We feel fortunate to announce that during this difficult time all Corsec business operations will continue as scheduled and without interruption. Corsec staff have been successfully meeting with customers, FIPS 140-2 and Common Criteria laboratories, and our partners via video conferencing over the last month and have uniformly gotten the response that everyone is committed to keeping projects on schedule.

Corsec will continue to monitor the crisis as we move through April and into May; following guidance and information from our government and healthcare professionals.

Impact on Security Certification Programs & Resources

Government security certification activities for FIPS 140-2, Common Criteria, and the DoDIN APL continue to operate during the COVID-19 crisis. Many governments and private laboratories have transitioned to teleworking for the foreseeable future. For additional information on how these programs may be impacted or if you have specific questions on your project, Contact Corsec.
