Blockchain - Secure by Design?

Executive Boardroom - 11:15 am - 11:40 am

One of the primary roadblocks to blockchain's broader adoption in the most relevant financial services use cases depends on resolution of a critical issue: security with a strong root of trust. The use of blockchain in cryptocurrency applications benefits from inherent security properties of the application that are lost when the technology is used for other applications. In order for blockchain technology to work, organizations need to believe and trust it. So, we must build trust into the technology of the chain itself by incorporating a root of trust for securing the cryptographic keys and operations of the system. 

Takeaways: 

  • Those who attend this session will come away with a good understanding of the main technology components that go into a functioning blockchain implementation and their role in the security of the system. 
  • Security practitioners will learn how to build appropriate levels of security into a blockchain implementation
  • Security buyers will learn what kinds of questions to ask and which trade-offs they need to make when deciding to incorporate blockchain technology in their solution stack.
