The pace and impact of cyberattacks on government and critical infrastructure IT systems have accelerated over the past several years. Malware inserted into software platforms and widely distributed to customers; ransomware attacks taking down hospitals and local governments; hacks endangering water systems – all of these and many more show that our systems are under siege.


Join us for five one-hour webinars spread over five days, as thought leaders from government at all levels and the contracting community focus each day on a specific aspect of the cyber threat environment and ways to more effectively respond and protect their most valuable assets – their data and IT systems.

Day 4: Blockchain Security   


Blockchain is most commonly considered the foundation for cryptocurrency – the usual form of payment by ransomware demands – because it is a method of recording information that makes it difficult to impossible to change, hack, or cheat records of transactions. It’s a form of “distributed ledger” that records every transaction to every participant’s copy of that ledger.


As a result, blockchain holds great potential to provide high levels of security for government agencies, provided they understand that transparency of transactions also is one of its characteristics.


Join us as thought leaders from government and industry discuss what blockchain is, how it works, what its benefits and drawbacks are, and how they are considering using it in their operations.
