Most businesses require simple id cards. A card with the employee name, title, picture and maybe a barcode is on the card holder badge. These cards are used for payroll functions or to provide identification for the security guard manning the business entrance.
Government offices often require a much higher level of security and access control. The buildings may not look any different than a typical office building, however the private information for the welfare of the government and it’s citizens,such as tax records and classified documents, reside inside.
This information makes government buildings subject to criminal activity and makes security of it’s people and information high priority. Many products from the security world’s offerings are used to secure the buildings. One method of security is a high level secure ID card.
