The Augmented Reality for Enterprise Alliance (AREA) has selected Brainwaive to chair its new Security Committee. AREA is the only global member-based organization dedicated to widespread adoption of interoperable AR-enabled enterprise systems.
“It is an honor to chair the AREA Security Committee,” says Tony Hodgson, Brainwaive CEO. “AR in the enterprise provides great opportunity to companies for increased efficiencies, increased safety and innovation, but along with these tremendous benefits comes increased concern about security threats to the enterprise, its customers and partners. Security in the enterprise and addressing and mitigating those risks is the focus, expertise and passion of Brainwaive. We look forward to working with AREA and alongside members of the Security Committee to address these challenges.”
The AREA Security Committee will focus on current and anticipated future security risks associated with the use of AR enabled wearable and mobile devices in enterprise environments. Under its charter it will identify, classify and prioritize known and anticipated security risks aligned with the the AREA Security Protocol; develop and disseminate security mitigation recommendations and best practices to enterprises, device manufacturers, systems integrators, operators and organizations overseeing enterprise security; identify education and training programs for capacity building and skill development to enterprises, device manufacturers, systems integrators, operators and organizations overseeing enterprise security; and propose research projects and programs to document, inform and increase awareness of security risk and risk mitigation techniques and measures.
