GENEVA and NEW DELHI, June 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

WISeKey has signed a strategic partnership with Appin Security Group to provide a
special WISeID for 100,000 students across training labs in India and other countries.
WISeID Students app is targeted to those enrolled in Appin courses offering professional
training in ethical hacking and information security and who plan to build a career in
that arena. Appin Training Labs, the cyber intelligence and security training division,
will offer WISeID Students to help students find potential employers from the WISeID
community.

“We are very happy for Appin to join hands with WISeKey to help meet security industry
employment requirements, which expect the need for security professionals to reach over 4
million by 2015,” said Rajat Khare, CEO Appin Security Group.

“WISeKey hopes this strategic partnership with Appin will train specialists with
experience in hacking, cyber forensics, email interception testing, and mobile phone
penetration testing, to help reverse the growing trend of data loss and cybercrime we’ve
seen over the last five years,” said Carlos Moreira, Founder and CEO, WISeKey.

Over the last half decade, more than 63% of students who completed Appin training have
found employment within three months. The WISeID Student app will be used by all students
participating in Appin training so that students can provide authenticated services to
potential employers world-wide using a WISeKey digital identity to offer secure reporting
of possible security risks.

WISeKey plans to expand the app to include the incorporation of WISeID eDiploma, which
provides digital signatures for the online verification of diplomas, certificates and
other credentials, allowing trusted publication on social networks such as Facebook and
LinkedIn.
