Blockchain: the New Digital Swiss Army Knife?

  • G. Mark Hardy, CISSP, CISM, GSLC.
  • Tuesday, February 6th, 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Now that the price of a single Bitcoin is approaching the price of a kilo of gold, is blockchain becoming a runaway train with businesses scrambling to hop on? If so, how can you take advantage of this opportunity, and will the mistakes be minor or catastrophic?

Blockchain as a technology has been proposed as a solution to everything from frictionless currency transfer to tracking cargo on ships. With over one billion dollars in venture funds invested and several hundred patents filed, every security professional must know the impact on organizations in terms of risk, volatility, and competitiveness. This talk will explore alternative uses for blockchain technology other than cryptocurrency, and provide a framework for utilizing and securing a technology considered as disruptive as the Internet was in the 1990s.
