Blockchain Security—Aligning to upcoming digital business initiatives

Date: October 16, 2019

This webinar was recorded on Wednesday, October 16th

Blockchain technology has been out for a while and has advertised many benefits over various transactions, including transparency, security, and speed. With these promises, several organizations have exploratory projects looking to take advantage of this technology.

What could possibly go wrong?

While this sounds exciting, as with any other application, blockchain technology may have flaws that could lead to devastating consequences. In this webinar, we are going to be covering some of the weaknesses associated with this technology and will give specific examples of what to look for with regard to security challenges. As blockchain is software, we will be covering real-life coding examples and pointing out the logic problems associated with them.

From early adopter to laggard – are you where you should be?

Ensuring that you’re prepared for new initiatives will be critical in supporting the business going forward. Security leaders must start exploring, and possibly adopting, forward-thinking, transformational technologies — such as blockchain, smart contracts, and cryptocurrency — and planning the same precautions as current business initiatives. With that said, many organizations lack understanding and are underestimating the security controls necessary for success.

Distilling down the best practices

Building a security approach on emerging technologies can be frustrating, as there will be many changes in the technology stack, platforms, and a complex understanding of new methodologies. With blockchain technology being relatively new, it can be difficult to distill security best practices from the variety of sources of information out there. With decades of experience and being counted on as an advisor to standards and regulations, Justin Leapline will provide insights to prepare you for typical questions and planning of future potential initiatives in your organization.
