The September issue of Scientific American magazine features an in-depth, illustrated article I wrote on RFID privacy and security threats. You can find it on newsstands and at bookstores everywhere, or read the article online here:
The entire issue is dedicated to Privacy, and the editors did a stellar job of identifying key issues on many fronts. I urge you to read the rest of the magazine here:
Scientific American is one of the oldest and most respected publications in America. It was an honor to be featured with so many of my colleagues and respected experts.
Katherine Albrecht, Ed.D.
P.S. Note that the print version of the magazine has beautiful layout and photos that are not available in the online version. The Scientific American website offers a $4.95 downloadable PDF of the entire magazine if you can't get a newsstand copy but would still like to see it in all its illustrated glory.
CASPIAN (Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering) is a grass-roots consumer group fighting retail surveillance schemes since 1999 and irresponsible RFID use since 2002. With thousands of members in all 50 U.S. states and over 30 countries worldwide, CASPIAN seeks to educate consumers about marketing strategies that invade their privacy and encourage privacy-conscious shopping habits across the retail spectrum.
