RFID Tracking Systems How to Prevent Tags from Transmitting & Receiving Signals Many businesses use some form of contactless radio frequency identification (RFID) tag system, whether it be for supply chain management, inventory and asset tracking, building access cards, etc. An RFID tag includes an antenna for transmitting and receiving signals, and an RFID chip which stores the tag’s ID and other information. The tag can be easily applied to the surface of an item and read using radio frequency (RF) technology. These radio waves transmit data from the tag to a reader, which then transmits the information to an...

The Complete Solution for Securely Transferring Mobile Devices from the Field to the Lab THE PROBLEM In order to follow protocol, when a police officer seizes a cell phone from a criminal/crime scene, the device needs to stay shielded from radio frequency signals and live until it can be transferred to a forensic box, faraday room, or data extraction tool to be analyzed. The device is often handled by numerous individuals during this process, and can sit untouched in an in-between stage sometimes for weeks or months until it can be analyzed. It is immensely important that the correct steps...

ARE YOU PREPARED FOR THE DEVASTATING EFFECTS OF AN EMP? In the case of an electromagnetic pulse (EMP), everything from electrical infrastructure on a national level to personal electronics could be destroyed. The sudden release of electromagnetic energy caused by man-made (e.g. atmospheric detonation of a nuclear weapon) or natural occurrences (e.g. geomagnetic storms) would be crippling to our survival. Although the likelihood of a severe EMP is rare, it’s a good idea to be prepared for this type of occurrence, just as you should be for all types of disasters. The easiest way to protect important electronics and survival...
