12 Security Guidelines from SIA

SIA - the Security Industry Association released its draft of a 12- point Privacy Framework for identity information security this week. Read more on this important plan here

One of the points in the framework is "Implementing privacy-enhancing solutions during the design phase of products, when possible."

A simple, low tech way to do just this is the use of an RFID shielded badge holder for personal ID cards that are RFID enabled. As many government employees are carrying a PIV, and CAC as their primary form of photo identification, these shielded badge holders protect the person's valuable private data that  can be encoded on the card's RFID chip.

Read more on protecting your card with RFID shielded secure badge holders here.

Visitor passes are one of the measures to ensure that adults walking the halls of a school are both authorized and cleared to be there. Visitor Pass Solutions (Data Management) sells a complete line of these types of passes, and Laminex is a full-line distributor.
