CNRFID has partnered with Convergent Software to develop RFID Privacy Impact Assessment Software

March 20th, 2014 – The CNRFID, the French National RFID Center, and Convergent Software Ltd are pleased to announce a new partnership to meet the processes defined in EN 16571 and to develop a multilingual cost-effective software to evaluate privacy in RFID and NFC applications.

A partnership about privacy on RFID and NFC applications.
This partnership will develop a cost-effective software to enable European companies using RFID and NFC to meet the processes defined in EN 16571 Information Technology – RFID privacy impact assessment process.
This new European Standard is expected to be published in July 2014.

A software for undertaking a privacy impact assessment on any RFID application.
This is a true co-development merging the skills of CNRFID with its in-depth understanding of RFID technology, with the RFID software development skills of Convergent Software Ltd (CSL).

This software reduces the need for the end user to understand the details of RFID technology.
With the minimum of accurate end-user input about the application, the software fully compliant with EN 16571, will carry out :
– All the comparable risk assessment processes irrespective of the application and the RFID technology used,
– The internal reports to help the organisation improve the privacy features of the RFID application,
– The external summary reports that the European Commission expects for all new RFID applications.
The software is planned to be available in different languages to support end users meeting the formal European Recommendation for undertaking a privacy impact assessment on any RFID application.
