Biscuit tins against information leakage

German high-tech company Evonik is using biscuit tins to fight the leakage of company confidential information through cell phones. The company develops and produces advanced battery systems for electronic cars. The interest in these developments, especially from foreign competitors and intelligence services, is overwhelming and poses a substantial threat to the continuity of the company.

Evonik’s conference rooms have been supplied with the biscuit tins. Inside these tins, cell phones are protected from being tapped due to the so-called Faraday-shield, which blocks out external static electric fields.

Blijft helaas onduidelijk waarom BitDefender dit opvallend en vooral ook een beveiligingsrisico vindt.
