WISeKey Founder and CEO Carlos Moreira is invited to attend a special closed-door session hosted by Premier Wen Jiabao for select members attending the event. Mr. Moreira will also be participating in the panel "From the Frontier: Information Technology," the morning of Friday, 16 September in which he shall discuss the dangers to safe participation on the Internet from the weakness of personal data protection.

This is recognition that WISeKey is making a profound contribution to protecting personal data and to allowing millions equipped with WISeKey technologies to perform highly secure transactions over the Internet" said Carlos Moreira.
The World Economic Forum's Community of Global Growth Companies was formed in 2007 to engage dynamic, high-growth companies which have the potential to be tomorrow's industry leaders and to become a driving force of economic and social change.
