As commerce within our country encounters ways to manage the COVID-19 pandemic, directives on how to navigate these mandates are outlined through the Coronavirus Guidance for America from the White House. This guidance states that critical infrastructure industries and their vendor providers are essential to maintain supplies and operations for those defined by The Department of Homeland Security as such.

The federal Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) provides strategic guidance, promotes a national unity of effort, and coordinates the overall federal effort to ensure the security and resilience of the Nation’s critical infrastructure.

On March 19, 2020, CISA listed ESSENTIAL CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE WORKERS DURING COVID-19 RESPONSE to help State and Local officials as they work to protect their communities while ensuring continuity of functions critical to public health and safety, as well as economic and national security. The complete list of these industries is available at The list is explicitly designed to inform critical infrastructure community decision-making to determine the sectors, subsectors, segments, or critical functions that should continue normal operations, appropriately modified to account for Centers for Disease Control (CDC) workforce and customer protection guidance.

Because Conference Technologies, Inc. is a supplier of critical infrastructure, our company and employees are recognized by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security as WORKERS ESSENTIAL CRITICAL INFRASTRUCTURE DURING COVID-19 RESPONSE by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.  

Please share this letter with any state or local government officials to confirm our status as your supplier, and the critical role we play in maintaining the nation’s supplies and communications.

Thank you for your continued partnership.
