Not just no on so many levels I loose count but HELL NO!
Invasion of privacy
Change positions and run out of "space" for micro-junk.
Tell them I said so too!
Aren't these just RFID?
It's certainly a twist on the something you have factor.
I wonder if removing it is part of the leavers process!
No employer has or should have the right to violate my person by way of mutilation, ingress or egress.
Why not tattoo administrators or other IT folks with an interactive bar scan while your at it. Just because something is possible doesn't make it a good idea.
Any time I see or hear about something like this I just laugh! People get this type of thing implanted and call themselves "biohacker", well what happens when someone reading it and spoofs it? Will part of the incident response plan include the doctor to see to remove and replace it every time there is a breach?
I think I would just find a new job at that point. We have plenty of means to authenticate using biometrics that does not involve the injecting of manmade objects into our bodies.
From a security perspective, all that a microchip gains is to increase the difficulty of stealing/losing/upgrading a badge.
There are early indications that microchips may not be completely safe in pets. Coupled with the fact that companies have been burdened with long-term liability for exposing (former) employees to health-risks, I would not have reached the same risk-analysis conclusion as your employer. I tend to lean much closer to the belief that only medically-necessary things (e.g. pacemakers, fillings, stents) be permanently introduced into the body.
Three Square Market made "history" by embedding chips into employees in 2017 as a trial and has since increase the number of folks that are chipped.
The company states that their employees can now simply wave their hand over their computer or a vending machine and viola everything is great.
It has been said that the current chips do not have GPS in them, however Three Square Market is now in the chip business "Three Square Chip" and are envisioning the devices being able to tell your doctor you have an issue.
I cannot even fathom what the Privacy industry (GDPR, CCPA, etc.) will do with something like this.
Personally, I would NOT take a job that forced me to be chipped or for that matter even suggested it....I would be waving bye as I drove away.
Hold on a second as I put on my faraday gloves before I type this so I'm in private mode!
Health information from a chip, real pie in the sky dreaming! Apple is putting tons into the health aspect of the Apple watch and even they are having trouble. There is that failing company that tried to put all your access control into a ring and found it was not as ease as I am guessing they thought. I guess what really amazes me are the outlandish claims made by companies to try to boost their imagine and get funding and no one steps back and goes.. umm NO! Does anyone remember Theranos?
