CARTES Secure Connexions Event 2013 – Building Trust in Mobile Life
Building Trust in Mobile Life
In a world where people are becoming ever more connected and where mobility is a major issue for companies and countries, issues relating to security, authentication and data protection are priorities for all solution providers.
CARTES Secure Connexions therefore decided to make 'Building trust in mobile life' its central theme in 2013.
It has been divided into four sub-themes:
• Mobile Security: Mobile payment, BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), SIM card security, etc.
• Secure Mobile Commerce: E-commerce, m-commerce, payment security, interconnected retail etc.
• Digital Identity: Digital identity, authentication, partnering for digital trust etc.
• Smart Cities: Object identities, machine to machine etc.
These are strategic fields where security and trust are key to successful growth in the mainstream market.
'The 28th CARTES Secure Connexions Event, to be held from 19 to 21 November 2013 at the Paris-Nord-Villepinte expo centre, will be a rich event with a focus on mobile life. Mobility, which has grown exponentially, offers a number of opportunities for security, payment, embedded intelligence and digital identity players in particular.So we are really looking forward to the sector's big event,' explains Isabelle Alfano, CARTES Secure Connexions Event 2013 Trade Show Manager.
