Letter from GlobalPlatform’s Executive Director

GlobalPlatform is evolving in parallel with market requirements. This has encompassed changes to our value proposition and organizational structure, including the introduction of the new TPS Committee, and developments to our branding, including our new visual identity, newsletter, and most recently, website!

The new, responsive site features existing GlobalPlatform content, plus visitors can now read use cases illustrating how GlobalPlatform technology is applied in the real world.

I would like to thank everyone who has been involved in the development of the new site and contributed to its launch. Our visual identity has evolved but our core principles remain the same – a continued commitment to protecting our digital world, fostering collaboration and open ecosystems, and empowering stakeholders to deliver innovative digital services while providing greater security, privacy, simplicity and convenience for users.

A REMINDER: Don’t forget to register for our annual seminar ‘Security in our Connected World’, further details are below.

SAVE THE DATE: A reminder that our Fall Member Meetings will take place in Lisbon from 12-16 November. We look forward to seeing you there!
