WISeKey warns developing countries at the UN Human Rights Council Conference (UNHRC) about the dangers of Cyber-Terrorism and dependency on Cloud Computing

    Genf (ots) - WISeKey represented by its Founder and CEO Carlos Moreira shared a panel at the UNHRC Session on Cyber-Terrorism, and freedom of expression. During the presentation WISeKey demonstrated how Cyber-Terrorism is increasing worldwide with the recent terrorist attacks. Many security experts and companies like WISeKey protecting critical infrastructures are concerned about the threat to critical assets in Government, the United Nations and enterprises worldwide. WISeKey explained that while information security has been a key concern since the proliferation of computer networks, the increased levels of concern has prompted organizations such as the United Nations to devote more resources and request assistance from the private sector to combat this threat. Computers can be used as weapons and the effort to improve computer security is driven by two contradictory forces, the Internet needs to be open, its architecture is totally decentralized and the Web was designed for different purposes, and software is essentially totally unsecured allowing hackers and Cyber-Terrorist to find their way in.

    During the presentation WISeKey demonstrated how the company is helping governments around the world to secure their critical assets and infrastructures and developing solution for the broader adoption of Trusted Cloud Applications allowing developing countries to participate fully and reduce dependency from centralized services in foreign countries.

    The shift to cloud computing in developing countries and emerged economies is fueled by the dramatic growth in business and e- government collaboration, IP based devices, real-time data streams, and Web 2.0 applications such as streaming media and entertainment, social networking and mobile commerce.
