X Topic Abstract

Since Blockchain became well-known as the foundational set of technologies that enabled the creation and operation of Bitcoin, it has captured the attention and imagination of designers, developers, business analysts, industry leaders, and investors. This is because as a set of technologies that use consensus and peer-to-peer, decentralized systems, it creates immutable data records and enables trusted computing and streamlining of business processes by disintermediation at scale. So what is preventing Blockchain technology from changing the world?

Presently, many people understand the basics of Blockchain Technology, yet they don’t understand it at a level to sufficiently address the most fundamental and important aspects of Information Assurance: Security and Auditing. This ambitious presentation will present some of the challenges that are preventing mass adoption of Blockchain, and some practical solutions to those challenges. Specifically:

1) Threats and Vulnerabilities in Blockchain-based systems;
2) How to Secure Blockchain infrastructure and applications;
3) How to perform Secure Software Development for Blockchain applications by design, coding practices, testing and verification;
4) Blockchain and Auditing
5) Concepts of Auditing the Data and Transactions in Blockchain Data Structures; and
6) Automating the Auditing of Blockchains and Blockchain Applications.
