Cool Technology of the Week
Massachusetts Data Protection regulations require us to encrypt mobile devices. Red Flag rules require us to implement processes to protect against identify theft. ARRA requires notification of prominent media for any inappropriate data disclosures.
This all sounds great, but what if you drop your wallet containing credit cards, identification cards, and maybe even your personal health information?
The answer - a Kevlar and Carbon Fiber wallet with biometric identification.
Tungsten W created such a wallet. Its features include:
*Fingerprint access only
*Bluetooth enabled for notification alerts - automated notification via bluetooth if your wallet strays more than 10 feet from your body
*Protected against RFID electronic theft - the case shields all contents from RFID scanners
A portable, monitored, personal safe you can keep in your back pocket and open via biometrics. That's cool.
