The Digital Security sector offers integrated coverage of digital security technologies — from information technologies to operational control processes. With end-to-end security research from the silicon, all the way up to cyber-based and IoT applications, the sector focuses on technology trends, in addition to industry-specific implementation. Specifically, the technology research covers hardware, packaging, device, appliances, software, platform, networks, and services for organizations, as well as for specific industries such as finance, government, defense, healthcare, energy, transport, and of course telecommunication.
To many, RFID is a term that should be applied narrowly to define a low-cost license plate tag technology for identification and little else.

Will a short range wireless technology that’s to be specified for the first time later this year expand the definition of RFID even further?
