NEW YORK, April 19, 2011 - Simon Hobbs spoke with WISeKey CEO Carlos Moreira yesterday about
protecting personal data. Discussing "the right to disappear," Simon Hobbs
asked founder Moreira about WISeKey's encryption technology which offers
governments, companies, and individuals services that protect data,
communication, and authenticate identities.
WISeKey offers WISeID Personal Data Protector, an iPhone app that stores
bank and credit card details, rewards points and frequent flyer programs.
WISeID protects your Personal Identifiable Information (PII)-the data which
contains unique identity and contact details traceable to one person-storing
it securely and theft-proof, using WISeKey's military-grade encryption.
WISeKey believes the individual should control their own PII. Mr. Moreira
discussed the fundamentals of WISeKey's technology that can support the right
to disappear. Soon, with your PII stored safely in WISeID, a smart card, or
mobile device, you will be able to choose which details you want to
distribute, where, to whom, and they can be deleted when you decide. You
remain the owner of your information.
Carlos Moreira is an expert in IT security, having worked in the field
for 25 years. WISeKey secured the e-voting project in Geneva, Switzerland,
guaranteeing that votes could not be intercepted or modified, offering easier
access to Switzerland's Direct Democracy. Mr. Hobbs revealed that WISeKey is
planning an IPO in Switzerland in 2012 and in the U.S. in 2013.
