Cyber security is in a crisis. Billions of Dollars get invested yearly to defend state secrets, corporate networks and individual privacy. Yet, we see high-profile cyber breaches hitting the news every day. Security has become a never-ending cat-and-mouse game with high speed change and innovation. The dynamics of the situation created a growing burden for defenders to make the right choices and keep ahead of bad actors. Within this context, a new breed of technologies based on blockchain is emerging, bringing new approaches and exploring cutting-edge solutions that may provide new tools to enhance cyber defenses. Beyond the obvious areas of identity management and smart contracts, this panel brings together experts with different perspectives on the promise and perils blockchain holds for data, communications and operating systems.

1:30pm-2:00pm |Blockchain: The Target and Tool of Cybercriminals
Keith Smith, Threat Intelligence Strategist, R9B

Cyber threats have shown preference for cryptocurrency in a variety of ways, some of which are less widely known than others. While blockchain technologies hold great promise in a variety of cybersecurity applications, the rising popularity of cryptocurrencies and the infrastructure supporting them has already offered new opportunities to cyber threat actors as well. Who are the threats? How might blockchain prove useful to threat actors? Research into cyber threats reveals that cybercriminals are also using the inherently egalitarian properties of the blockchain to obfuscate their infrastructure and remain anonymous as they conduct their malicious activity.

Blockchain and distributed ledgers are known for the openness they enable for data and transactions. It’s no wonder that blockchain has been such a cultural and philosophical fit in the open source community, which has driven much of the growth and development of this technology. But as soon as the word ‘enterprise’ is added to the mix, this immediately sounds proprietary, and at-odds with openness. How do the enterprise and open source worlds fit together? Learn via real use cases how enterprises are leveraging blockchain, and how the openness of data and development has accelerated their journeys.
