"Cybersecurity Aspects of Blockchain and Cryptocurrency"
Many companies are considering blockchain technologies to make transactions faster, more secure and cost effective. If you are performing risk analysis on these emerging technologies, you ask be asking yourself: how do I even start to analyze risk when there are so many unknowns? A successful analysis requires a paradigm shift in thinking into two areas: casting aside the defense-in-depth metaphor to describe security controls; and, how we assess and analyze risk of new and emerging technologies that have a high degree of uncertainty.
This talk will cover how to reframe your assessments for emerging technologies, such as blockchain, and how risk quantification methodologies such as Factor Analysis of Information Risk (FAIR) can help answer some of these questions and produce a credible risk assessment.
