Are you RFID secure? By 2012 it is estimated that over 29 million British citizens will carry some form of RFID enabled device. All UK passports issued since 2006 store bio-metric information about the holder. Likewise, 'contactless' credit cards are also being issued with embedded RFID chips. We are concerned that RFID information theft may be the next major crime wave to hit the UK.
Security risks have already been identified with this relatively new technology, and many cards (even your new bio-metric passport) could be read quite easily using portable equipment. (RFID data has been 'skimmed' from distances between 50 to 69 feet using suitable equipment.) As this technology develops, criminals will become even more motivated to steal your personal details - and you won’t feel a thing! Claims have been made that the RFID encryption on UK passport chips was broken in less than 48 hours after their launch in 2006, and passport data 'skimmed' whilst in the postal system.
Scanners used to read RFID information can be easily purchased by anyone, from ‘online’ stores for less than £200. With a scanner, and the appropriate software in place, there's the potential to read information from your RFID enabled device. With our range of ‘anti-skim’ products, you can reduce your risk of becoming a victim of RFID information theft. Can you afford not too?
RFID Protect supply a range of sleeves, wallets, and ID card shields that are designed specifically to offer protection against unauthorised access to ‘contactless technology'.
RFID enabled devices that you may already possess include, but not exclusively, credit cards, passports, identity cards, travel cards, ski-passes and many passes for electronic ‘swipe card’ door entry systems. Components can be extremely small, and you may not even be aware that an item you carry about every day is already RFID enabled!
You may not know what information is stored on your RFID chip, but is it worth the risk of allowing someone else to read your data - without your knowledge?
Our products have been demonstrated on UK television (ITV This Morning, ITN Channel 4 News) and proved to be highly effective. In May 2012, we enjoyed national press coverage (The Sun, Daily Mail) “Robbed by Radio wave”.
