Jorrun Liston:  Welcome Everyone!  We are recording this presentation and will post it to naccuTV.

 Jen McDonald:  What advice would you give for a card office that is trying to break into access control? Our security department currently handles it and uses a separate card.

 Lynn Ernsting:  Is it possible to utilize mobile credentials without CBORD’s CS Access solution (keeping our current access solution)?

 Scott Rosario:  When enabling provisioning for mobile credentials; does student need to actually open the wallet or app, or can they simply put the phone up to the reader?

 Jorrun Liston:  If you have a question, please feel free to unmute and ask it, or type in the chat.  Thanks!

 Jen McDonald:  Thanks 🙂

 Jen McDonald:  Do you only support NFC, or do you also support BLE credentials?

 Jen McDonald:  Thank you

 Lynn Ernsting:  Is it possible that shifting to a mobile credential could improve some security risks (cards aren’t returned, not reported lost, deactivated) but could cause more security risk with access control glitches or technological issues?

 Chantal Flament:  When we change the readers to go mobile, do we have to switch from Wiegand to OSDP?

 Cheryl Michaels:  Do you have any real world examples of the impact on power outages on access to rooms? How long do the readers have back up power?

 Lynn Ernsting:  Can the institution globally require dual authentication or is it only a setting that patrons can turn on/off themselves?

 Jen McDonald:  I have to run to another meeting. Thank you for the great information.

 Katelyn Miller (CBORD):  Thanks Jen!

 Cheryl Michaels:  So, let’s say a device with a double AA backup fails, the batteries are replaced – am I correct in that the back up cache would be wiped and would required the data to be downloaded again?

 Cheryl Michaels:  Great, thank you

 Richard Wynn:  Thank you Ryan and Katelyn.

 Lynn Ernsting:  Thank you, both!

 Melinda Bakken:  thank you!

 Sheryl Puckett:  Thank you Ryan and Katelyn.  Great information

 Katelyn Miller (CBORD):  Thanks all for your great questions!

 Jorrun Liston:  Thanks to everyone for attending and to CBORD for this great presentation.  You can visit with them at NACCU 2022 in St. Louis next month.

 Sheri Pape:  We can’t wait!!!
