As to the method of issue, working freelance I have worked at a range of sights and I am quite happy with the "get a day pass from reception" because, generally, like most people I rarely forget and I appreciate how important security is. Can you really say you are taking all necessary actions to protect the data if anyone can walk through the building? I think not.

My preferred method of on site card carrying is either lanyard or on a reel. My least favourite are the plastic holders (which rip) with the metal clips (which hold onto nothing).

In my industry now, there is a much different emphasis. If you forget your badge in most places, you are denied entry, period. Entry requires the badge and then other bio-ID means of access, so without the badge you have a non-starter.

I have a barcoded photo ID that I wear on a reel as well as a fob for door and printer access.
Lost cards are $25.
People share fobs and knock on doors all the time...it really irritates me.

As a consultant I've seen many scenarios.
In some cases the card the card is only necessary to get in. In other cases you need the card as well to go to different floors and use the elevator.
I keep the card usually in my wallet which makes sure I almost never forgot them.

The few times I did forget them (and thus also my wallet), I just checked in at the reception and they gave me a visitors pass. Not really top secret facilities I was working in :-)

I have a card with my photo. It opens the door but don't need it for elevators. It gets deactivated when lost and am issued a new one at no cost. It is supposed to be displayed at all times.

Here a lost card is quickly replaceable at HR (I think they charge a few bucks as a deterrent but not sure how much). You can get in at the security office to go to HR.

The concern here is mostly about outsiders. The majority of employees recognize each other anyhow.

I'm hoping security will be tougher if top secret stuff going on!

Most likely.
A colleague of mine had to do a project at a more top secret client, and they did a background check of him, his family and friends.

For us, we have security issue a temporary card when you forget yours, If you have lost it they will deactivate the old one and print and issue a new one. Being the person who works with our system I can tell you the proximity badges do cost roughly $5 each. We are contemplating charging for replacements. Our previous system used barcodes and only cost about 25 cents each to print so it wasn't as big a deal to replace them.
