WISeKey and BVLGARI are delighted to organize a Lunch Roundtable with the special attendance of M. Kevin Spacey, Ambassador of WISeKey.
On this occasion a group of international experts will share their vision and experience in areas related to the 4th Industrial Revolution such as secured Internet of Things (NFC Trusted), Blockchain, cybersecurity and fintech. In addition, a concrete case study of the BVLGARI Diagono eMagnesium intelligent watch secured by WISeKey, will be demonstrated as a world premiere. Experts will discuss new efforts to secure the state of the world through IoT technology that needs to be implemented with smart machines that are able to identify and learn from each other and evolve in their decision-making capabilities to help stay ahead of threats.
"I have always been fascinated by the complex and crucial world of technology and security. WISeKey's grasp of the challenges and the potential of this space have greatly impressed me as they have developed a range of products and services that are leading the field. I look forward to working with Carlos Moreira and the team to learn more about their technology and to help communicate WISeKey's story around the world." - Kevin Spacey WISeKey Ambassador

Until recently, IT departments in manufacturing companies have been largely responsible for safeguarding firms’ data centers, business systems, computers, and networks. With the advent of smart, connected devices, the game changes dramatically. […]

The reaction of the traditional watch industry to the arrival of the Apple Watch and other forms of connected wristwear has been decidedly varied.
But perhaps the most unusual counter to the perceived threat that smartwatches pose to clockwork comes from BVLGARI’s Diagono Magnesium Wrist Vault, which claims to be “the first intelligent luxury watch”.
Still a concept, but — according to a BVLGARI insider — certain to become reality, the Wrist Vault has been developed with Swiss digital secure storage specialist WISeKey and uses a cryptographic chip inside the case to hold personal data.
An invisible antenna, also mounted within the watch, can then connect with a smartphone using near field technology (NFT) to transmit a “digital certificate” securely from the BVLGARI Vault application previously downloaded on to an iOS or Android smartphone. Only the owner of the watch has access to the data, which BVLGARI says will be stored with “banking-level” security.
The idea is that the watch could be used for everything, from storing codes to transmitting payments and even remotely opening car doors. NFT is said to be a very secure form of data transfer because it works only when the paired devices are close together. […]
Security, security, security, privacy… I get it, we all get it, to do IoT right we must address security and privacy. It seems everything you read today related to the Internet of Things focuses on the negative instead of the positive.
Well, congrats for BVLGARI for their cooperation with WISeKey on this new concept watch and addressing security and privacy from the get-go!
