In two weeks the 3. Forum Sicherheit und Reisen will take place in Stuttgart, Germany. The conference is connecting security and mobility professionals with a focus on saver business travels. One of the discussed aspects will be Smartphones and their influence in security.
Smartphones could play a significant role as Early-warning and Traveler Tracking System. In order to use Smartphones as security channel corporates need to maintain a database with mobile phone numbers of their Business Travellers. This database needs to be connected with a messaging system able to send and receive high quality SMS. The Smartphone not only can receive critical messages but also respond to the system by sending back the actual location in real time.
At the Forum Sicherheit und Reisen several workshops will look closer to the topic. Here is a link of the agenda.
