The BAR Seminar will explore the promise of Blockchain to mitigate today’s risks and the implications its introduction will have on data protection, cybersecurity, ethics, operations, finance and law
Blockchain is set to transform global business. Offering built-in security, tamper-proof architecture and the opportunity to cut out third parties, the technology has naturally attracted attention for its risk reduction potential.
How will Blockchain deliver risk reductions? Improvements may include enhanced data privacy, strengthened cybersecurity – at a time when the average data breach is estimated to cost businesses €3.5m – and mitigation against fraudulent activity. Yet whilst Blockchain’s potential positive impact on risk profiles is understood, many of the particulars remain open for discussion.
As Blockchain is adopted, additional risks must also be considered. New risks will be created in the areas of operations, finance, legal and regulation. Due to the fundamentally new design Blockchain introduces, current risk frameworks, governance and controls will likely require fresh consideration.
The Blockchain And Risk (BAR) Seminar creates a meaningful opportunity for professionals to explore the potential of Blockchain technology and its impact on key risk factors. Invited experts will offer insight from a wide variety of disciplines including data protection, cybersecurity, ethics and from sectors including finance, gaming, and law.
Join us at BAR Seminar to understand the key risk factors associated with Blockchain, be informed on its potential to mitigate risk, and understand how to navigate the risks associated with its introduction.
