Privacy, RFID, and Pharma

Looking ahead to next week, as I and the other RFID Security Alliance panelists prepare for our discussion at INTERPHEX 2009 on the implementation of RFID in the pharmaceutical supply chain, one of the questions that we hope to address pertains to fear.

There seems to be a lingering unease with RFID within the pharmaceuticals industry, largely due to RFID's bad press, and centering on the question, does investing in RFID add a data security risk and patient privacy risk while attempting to tackle other issues (logistical cost reduction, counterfeit prevention, addressing drug safety issues, etc.).

Are these fears legitimate? Are there other factors at issue with RFID?

Drop me a line and let me know what your concerns are and we'll try to address them on March 17 during our discussion.
