Description

RFID is an exciting technology. It allows organizations to drastically improve their inventory and tracking processes, saving time and money. It has also been used for everything from ID and door badges to fare cards. However, the implementation of this promising technology has not had a corresponding set of recommendations for security. This session will discuss best practices for securing systems that your organization may already own, how to implement security in your purchasing reviews, how to assess risk for RFID implementations, and what new emerging technologies provide the most promise for improving security.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Demonstrate understanding and appreciation for the fundamentals of RFID technology
  • Apply the knowledge gained to better secure existing RFID implementations
  • Assess RFID-based technologies for appropriate privacy and security protection
  • Describe future RFID technologies and how they can influence the healthcare environment
