Carlos Creus Moreira at the World Economic Forum Davos 2014
WISeKey, the Swiss cyber security expert and World Economic Forum Global Growth Company Partner, spearheaded multiple thought leadership events within the cyber security and digital neutrality space at this year’s World Economic Forum Annual Meeting in Davos by organizing two events: Digital Security Task Force in partnership with OISTE.ORG and ID Personal Cloud Services launch during the Swiss Night.
WISeKey hosted the Swiss Night, an annual traditional Davos event that brings together international leaders from the public and private sector to celebrate Swiss innovation. At this year’s event, WISeKey and the OISTE Foundation launched the Digital Security Task Force (DSTF). Under OISTE.org’s leadership, the task force’s central focus is to promote worldwide changes to the digital security environment, including neutrality, standardization, digital identification, trusted clouds, and data sovereignty for a more efficient cyberspace framework which will allow countries to use this model as reference for their national cyber security strategies. The DSTF plans to vigorously engage international organizations to cooperate in and contribute to the development, dissemination, and implementation of cyber security advancement, with a focus on the improvement of current conditions and mitigation of potential risks.
Additionally, WISeKey CEO Carlos Moreira will presented the company’s deployment plan for Personal Secure Cloud Services, which makes ‘Swiss’ grade secure cloud storage available to users across the globe.
“2014 is the year we will see personal clouds move the gravity center from application-centric to personal centric models where users will retake the control of their personal data. Gone are the days of huge centralized clouds and ID metasystems with no respect to personal data. The trend WISeKey is launching this year is Personal Clouds. Developing localized personal cloud computing will localize and reduce the cost of the cloud technology” said - Carlos Moreira during the event.
