Letter from GlobalPlatform’s Executive Director

In June we moved even closer to our Asian technical workshops by posting the agenda. We also published our sponsorship kit which outlines the various benefits available from supporting one, two, or all three events.

In addition, our friends at the Trusted Computing Group provided an interesting blog investigating TPM 2.0 and the Rise of Mobile. We also welcomed Cisco Systems, Inc. as a Full Member and SERMA Technologies as a Participating Member. We look forward to their contributions to future GlobalPlatform initiatives.

GlobalPlatform Brings Technical Workshops to Asia

The agenda for our free-to-attend Asian technical workshops has been published.

The workshops – which include input from all three GlobalPlatform technical committees  – will focus on key technologies and take place in the following cities:

  • Seoul, Korea – August 27
  • Shenzhen, China – September 24 and September 25
  • Tokyo, Japan – September 27

*To meet high levels of demand in China, the event will be held twice – it is not a two-day event.
