GlobalPlatform Instructor-led Training Sessions to Take Place in Hong Kong

15 June 2015 – GlobalPlatform, the association which standardizes the management of applications on secure chip technology, will bring a highly qualified and specially trained instructor to Hong Kong to host its next card specification and contactless training sessions at the Hyatt Regency Hong Kong, from 24-26 August 2015. The two-day card technology training course and one-day contactless training course, both available to GlobalPlatform members and non-members, are designed to improve industry knowledge of GlobalPlatform Card Specifications, their capabilities and functions.

The card technology training course, taking place from 24-25 August, provides an in-depth explanation of the GlobalPlatform Card Specifications, and addresses secure channels, security domains and application programming interfaces. Over the course of the session delegates will develop a comprehensive understanding of how GlobalPlatform Specifications can support recognized business models.

The one-day contactless training session, taking place on 26 August, will educate participants on the role of GlobalPlatform Specifications in relation to contactless-enabled services on mobile platforms. Topics to be covered include trusted service manager (TSM) messaging, the various secure element architectures and service lifecycle management. Delegates are advised to attend the two-day card technology course first to gain familiarity with the GlobalPlatform Specifications before attending the more advanced contactless session.

Both sessions offer delegates an opportunity to have ongoing Q&A with a GlobalPlatform subject matter expert, enriching the experience and ensuring maximum value for those who attend.

“Asia continues to be a key focus area for our members and over the last 12 months we have seen a significant growth of GlobalPlatform compliant products in the region,” comments Kevin Gillick, Executive Director of GlobalPlatform. “GlobalPlatform’s training events continue to be of interest to an increasing number of participants in the secure chip technology sector, and in particular to audiences developing and deploying secure mobile services. We took the decision to bring our training to Hong Kong once again as a result of overwhelming demand from the region for this specialist knowledge.”

To provide a dynamic learning environment, the sessions will be limited to a maximum of 15 students. It is recommended that students who wish to attend the contactless session first register to join the card technology training event by visiting

Kevin continues: “We understand well the importance of our role in educating delegates on the business benefits gained from implementing highly specified and standardized technology in this market and hope attendees of these sessions find them as valuable as they have been for participants at our previous training events.”
