Group Led by CDT Releases RFID Privacy Best Practices
A working group led by CDT and made up of some of the nation's largest companies, public interest and consumer advocates today unveiled a set of "best practices" designed to promote respect for consumer privacy in the growing use of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology. Released today at RFID Journal Live! in Las Vegas, the document offers guidance for companies that use RFID technology to collect data that can be linked to consumers' personally identifiable information. In addition to CDT, the American Library Association, aQuantive, Cisco Systems, Eli Lilly and Company, IBM, Intel, Microsoft, the National Consumers League, Procter & Gamble, VeriSign and Visa USA all worked for more than a year to develop the document, a first of its kind for RFID technology.
