Letter from GlobalPlatform’s Executive Director
February saw GlobalPlatform publish a strategic update to give the industry insight into the organization’s new initiatives and Board that are making our 20th year one of our most significant as we work to provide greater security, privacy, simplicity and convenience for users.
GlobalPlatform unfortunately had to postpone its SE IoT workshop in Nuremberg due to circumstances caused by Coronavirus. We will be rescheduling the workshop so stay tuned for further updates!
Looking to the month ahead we will be hosting our Spring Meetings in Austin, Texas on March 30-April 03. The meetings offer a great time to reflect on a range of GlobalPlatform initiatives, as well as a look to what’s in store for the year ahead.
We look forward to seeing you in Austin!
