LAS VEGAS, April 13, 2015 ISC WestHID Global®, a worldwide leader in secure identity solutions is sponsoring two Mission 500 events at this week’s ISC West International Security Conference and Exhibition in Las Vegas. Mission 500 is the security industry’s initiative to serve the needs of children and communities in crisis through partnership with the World Vision Christian humanitarian organization.

A Mission 500 sponsor for six years, HID Global is hosting a School Kit Build where volunteers will load backpacks with school supplies for local students at a Title One school in the Las Vegas area.

“HID Global is deeply committed to Mission 500 and its goal to support children in crisis worldwide. Sponsoring the backpack build and the 5K run reflects our dedication to give back to communities around the world where we live, work and operate,” said Denis Hébert, HID Global President and CEO. “It is incumbent upon us to help children in need today for they are our future.
