This theme will focus on current key issues, such as totally secure mobility, secure services for cloud computing, biometrics, data protection in a digital society and even smart commerce.

The United Arab Emirates will be in the spotlight for many events during CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS 2014. The UAE is a dynamic hub for global trade with exceptional infrastructures and offers enormous potential for the digital security industry.

In addition, the UAE will host the 2020 Universal Exhibition in Dubai, for which the central theme will be « Connect minds. Build the future». This project is completely in phase with the connectivity issues for individuals, societies and ideas, and at the heart of future growth and sustainability.
