August 2017 Email Bulletin

August 2017


It gives me great pleasure to announce that registration is now open for the 5th Annual Trusted Execution Environment (TEE) Seminar. This year’s event will take place in Beijing on 12 September, with the theme ‘Providing Security for Digital Devices’. This is the only industry event focused on the evolving TEE landscape, and it’s growing rapidly. In fact, more than a billion processors that can support TEE are shipped worldwide every quarter. The seminar will provide a unique opportunity for all stakeholders engaged in the development and deployment of TEE technology to discuss use cases across various market sectors, the current status of the market, and future business requirements.

To make good use of delegates’ time in Beijing, we have planned for a two-day TEE Specifications Training class to take place on 13-14 September at this same location.  The class, taught in English, has limited space available, so register today to guarantee your place. We look forward to seeing you in Beijing!
