In a world where people are increasingly more mobile and infrastructures increasingly more connected, end-user mobility is, today, a major issue for citizens, companies and governments.

The central theme of CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS 2014, « Users on the move », illustrates this edition’s ambition to be the international meeting place for the digital security industry serving the end user, in tune with a sector in constant progression.

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.

At the cutting edge of connectivity, country of honour 2014 - The United Arab Emirates

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.

« To ensure its financial development today, the international community has to address ever more complex and increasingly interconnected challenges», stresses Isabelle ALFANO, event director. « The UAE project for the Universal Exhibition is a great example and will enable us to promote new initiatives in the scope of this 29th edition of CARTES SECURE CONNEXIONS. ».
