Cybersecurity during COVID-19

    CardLab discuss how you can ensure your cybersecurity during COVID-19 and the everchanging world of biometric cards, digital payments, and ID cards.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has presented a new threat to central systems with workstations placed outside company firewalls. Outside the firewall, hackers have easier access to computers and online devices, demonstrating a major risk to cybersecurity during COVID-19. In this eBook, CardLab discuss their innovative solutions and how they can increase cybersecurity during COVID-19 using a wide range of technologies, such as:

    • Blockchain
    • Biometrics
    • Energy harvesting
    • e-banking
    • e-government
    • e-health
