RIYADH, Geneva, Jan. 20, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- WISeKey will be presenting the WISeID Cloud Digital Platform at the Global Competitiveness Forum 2014. The Global Competitiveness Forum (GCF) is an annual meeting that brings together 1,000 high-ranking corporate and political leaders for three days of discussion and dialogue with respect to the positive impact organizational and national competitiveness can have on local, regional and global economic and social development. The GCF is an annual event organized by the Saudi Arabia General Investment Authority under the patronage of the HM King Abdullah Bin Abdulaziz.
Carlos Moreira, Founder and CEO of WISeKey, will speak at the panel session "New Digital Age" which will explore the future of digital connectivity and business dependence on the virtual world. Mr. Moreira will showcase WISeKey's WISeID platform. WISeID provides trusted digital identities for individuals who interact in social media and perform confidential transactions on open graphs. The WISeID Cloud app is a set of online tools to empower the user by providing secure, authenticated, and private digital identification. WISeID's upcoming version 5 provides secure personal cloud storage of identity and data in WISeKey's Swiss Cloud storage and enables users to protect and sync their data and passwords across their personal devices.
"At WISeKey we advocate that personal data protection need not be neglected for the enjoyment of social media or surrendered to the network provider. A number of social graphs have emerged by controlling slices of social media, but as isolated models each becomes a de-facto resource, compromising individual privacy. WISeID gives users the best of both worlds by providing the freedom to enjoy the full spectrum of open graph systems from social to transactional, without compromising personal digital security," -Carlos Moreira, Founder and CEO of WISeKey.
