Protect Information on RFID Cards

by todd 3. November 2010 12:06

Many organizations now use contactless access cards and ID cards to allow employees, vendors or regular visitors into buildings. Information is stored on these cards thanks to Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology.

While it can be convenient to store information on ID cards, it can also be easily stolen with a common RFID reader. Since colleges and employers often store individual’s personal information on ID cards, protecting yourself from identity theft should be a top priority.

To protect yourself or your employees from identity theft, always wear your ID card with RFID technology in an RFID Secure Badge Holder.

The RFID Secure Badge Holder blocks RFID signals that are necessary for a reader to access the information on your card. The badge holder prevents identity theft, and you can easily slide the card out to gain access into a facility. The badge holder can accommodate 2 cards, so you can also protect a credit card or drivers license.

If you require employees to wear an ID card with an RFID chip, provide RFID Secure Badge Holders  and badge reels as well to protecting their identity and personal information.
