Created in 2011 from the former e-Smart and Smart Mobility conferences, Chip-to-Cloud Security Forum is a wide-ranging event covering all technical aspects of all assets protection in embedded, mobile and cloud technologies from the foundations such as cryptography, hardware security mechanisms and embedded software security technologies to the latest developments of trusted services delivery. The Forum doesn’t see security only as a technology. It also covers the societal aspects arising from our “Networked Society”: with tens of billions of smart connected devices, our increasingly digital/connected life raises tremendous security, trust and privacy challenges at personal and societal levels.
Part of “World Smart Week”, Chip-to-Cloud Security Forum operates as the technical and forward thinking conference at the root of the three business-oriented conferences held in parallel: NFC World Congress, World e-ID Congress and M2M Innovation World Congress. The four conferences altogether form a global meeting for the contactless, e-ID, M2M and digital security sectors aimed to maximise the synergies between them. Last year, World Smart Week gathered 1300 high level participants sharing a common objective: bringing an "easier trusted mobile life" for the consumers and citizens. This purpose remains highly topical in 2013.
