Letter: Don’t put security eggs in one basket

Regarding “The security badge for the future”: The new all-in-one ID badge sounds interesting, but I don't believe it -- or any other security initiative -- has been through any sort of analysis. I didn't see any discussion of the cost of implementing this, nor did I see any discussion of what risks it was actually supposed to mitigate. The only thing I do know from a security perspective is that putting all your eggs in one basket is not a wise choice.
