WISeKey in Focus at Davos as the WEF Names Cyber-security a Top Global Risk
The growth of cloud computing highlights the complexity of data sovereignty: data can be stored virtually anywhere but it has a physical presence somewhere in the world. This location operates under a jurisdiction whose laws could have unexpected impact on the availability or ownership of data.
Cyber-terrorism or the infiltration of sensitive information could neutralize vital systems. Software engineers are, pound for pound, the most valuable weapons in a military arsenal.
Social networks compile data daily with no international regulations on personal privacy. The gap between a person and a digital identity leaves millions vulnerable to dangers beyond identity theft. "There isn't anything built into the Web that can verify who you are," says Carlos Moreira, WISeKey CEO. "WISeKey's systems have been the closest thing for years. WISeID (http://www.wiseid.com/) is the first global answer to this problem."
