ISS 24/7’s DHS SAFETY Act Designation
ISS 24/7 has been approved as a Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technology (QATT) provider under a formal SAFETY Act (“the Act”) Designation by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). ISS 24/7’s Command Post is a web-based system designed to enhance situational awareness, safety, and security at sporting and entertainment events. The Technology is a means to digitally record, communicate, monitor, and analyze incidents occurring during events at sports and entertainment venues, such as fights, medical issues, maintenance issues, bomb threats or suspicious activity, or other guest complaints.
In addition to being monitored on personal computers at the venue command center, the software application can be accessed on most hand-held smartphones or tablets with Android or iOS operating systems. The components of the Technology include an Incident Management and Text System. The Technology has several visual cues to increase the users’ situational awareness: time-stamps, color-coding, and blinking alerts.
About DHS SAFETY Act
As part of the Homeland Security Act of 2002, Public Law 107-296, Congress enacted several levels of liability protection for providers of anti-terrorism technologies. The SAFETY Act (“the Act”) provides incentives for the development and deployment of anti-terrorism technologies by creating a system of “risk management” and a system of “litigation management.” The purpose of the Act is to ensure that the threat of liability does not deter potential manufacturers or Sellers of anti-terrorism technologies from developing, commercializing, and deploying technologies that could significantly reduce the risks or mitigate the effects of large-scale terrorist events. Thus, the Act creates certain liability limitations for “claims arising out of, relating to, or resulting from an Act of Terrorism” where Qualified Anti-Terrorism Technologies have been deployed. The Act does not limit liability for harms caused by anti-terrorism technologies when no Act of Terrorism has occurred.
