Founder and CEO of WISeKey, Carlos Moreira said, “WISeKey will help Real Madrid generate extra revenue by distributing official mobile content in China, creating a mobile community of Real Madrid fans who choose to receive Real Madrid’s exclusive mobile content using WISeKey’s world-leading eSecurity technologies.”
Carlos Moreira said the Internet is a 20-year-old infrastructure that was not designed to carry the load, security issues or usage of the system today. “In the coming years it is imperative that we promote a new system that provides security for users around the world.”
Carlos Moreira, Founder and President of WISeKey, said: “WISeKey Brasil objective is to consolidate the e-Security and Digital Identification market in Brazil and South America. This market is now very fragmented and requires to be consolidated under a trusted e-Security brand such as WISeKey. Our expansion in the region will include strategic acquisitions in the e-Security.”
“These public service projects involve creating digital software platforms in new environments while making sure the regulators, corporations, grant donors, and the general public stay supportive and collaborative,” said Carlos Moreira, WISeKey’s CEO. “Those ambitions are almost always challenging. But these projects can improve millions of lives. They speak to the heart of what WISeKey does best.”
“We are proud to be selected as an AlwaysOn Global 250 Winner. This award highlights the ground breaking impact WISekey is bringing to the field of Trusted Identities, Trusted Cloud and Infrastructures required to make the Internet a safe place for all. More and more people around the world are using WISeIDs to protect their personal data and improve and secure their communications,” said Carlos Moreira, CEO and Founder of WISeKey.
“It is estimated that only 1 billion people out of the world’s nearly five billion mobile device users have bank accounts, but people need a way of sending money to peers,” said Carlos Moreira, CEO of WISeKey. “In addition to the ‘unbanked’, there are the ‘underbanked’—those who have inaccessible bank accounts, as branches and ATMs are rare in many emerging economies.”
“This is a major issue debated between WEF Global Growth Companies here in Tianjin, as counterfeiting represents five to seven percent of all world trade and is increasing daily,” said Carlos Moreira, WISeKey’s CEO. “With luxury brand industries estimated at one trillion dollars (US), these companies need a reliable solution that will prove authenticity. We are pleased that WISeKey technology is now used in the fight against counterfeiting.”
”I am delighted that this group of prestigious leaders accepted my invitation to join our Strategy Committee,” said Carlos Moreira, founder and CEO of WISeKey. “These leaders bring their extensive experience and knowledge of the business community to WISeKey, and will help us set the right strategy for future growth. Our membership already includes a number of business luminaries and each of them brings vast experience in a variety of businesses from all around the globe. I thank all of our new strategy committee for their willingness to contribute their knowledge and experience to WISeKey.”
Mr. Moreira said, “Dr. Corboud Fumagalli’s appointment is the first step in what I am sure will be a fruitful cooperation between WISeKey and leading teaching and research Universities.”
By invitation of President Nicolas Sarkozy, Mr. Moreira will represent WISeKey at the e-G8 Forum this week. Mr. Sarkozy intends to focus on the critical importance of the digital ecosystem to global economic growth. WISeKey’s digital security and authentication expertise mandates that the Geneva-based firm play a role establishing universal protocols for digital identity management.
“Social networks are compiling data daily, but there are no international regulations,” points out Mr. Moreira. “Abuse is inevitable, but the e-G8 can help here.” Data flows globally, but privacy laws are a matter of geopolitics. Fortunately, the current atmosphere in Europe and the USA is that data privacy is a fundamental right: individuals should control how their personal data is used and by whom.
This protection is currently available in other industries but it is not yet available in social networking. The philosophy of rethinking personal data is not a technology issue because the technology already exists; the problem is that the data does not belong to the individual concerned. When you transfer data to Facebook or Twitter or indeed any other social network, you are giving your data away for free. But if you give something away for free, how can you recover it later? “There is no method of recovery,” says Moreira. “Once you give something away for free it is no longer yours – it belongs to the organization that you gave it to.”
