Hacked Security Cards – Is Your Company at Risk?

Chances are, if you work in a corporate office or government building, you need some sort of badge to get through doors, or use the elevator. But how secure are those badges?

A team of German scientists recently created a hack that allows them to make a clone of a commonly used magnetic security card that corporate and government workers are often given, meaning the physical security of your company could be in jeopardy.

In fact, researchers stated that hacking could take as little as three hours. The key for more secure cards is a card with the ability to resist being recorded and a multi-faceted authentication process.
