With 718,000 civilian personnel and more than 1.4million men and women on active duty, the United States Department of Defense (DoD) is the United States’ single largest employer. Established under the National Security Act of 1947, DoD coordinates and supervises all agencies and functions of government relating directly to national security and the military.

Data integrity is of paramount importance given the highly sensitive nature of information handled by DoD employees and contractors on a daily basis.

By introducing strong employee authentication measures, DoD has led the way in digital security for the Federal government. Its CAC program has issued over 17 million smart identity badges to date.

As an accredited provider of smart cards to the DoD, Gemalto is proud to contribute to this initiative.
